2019 PBA Young Lawyers Division Mock Trial Competition

On Thursday, February 21st, T.J. Jensen and Robert Gawlas, associates in our Litigation Department, and Christyan Telech and Nick Marinelli, associates in our Corporate Department, volunteered to be jurors for the 2019 PBA Young Lawyers Division Mock Trial Competition, held at the Luzerne County Courthouse.

The Mock Trial Competition is held in different districts throughout the state, where high school teams compete in simulated trials and actual local judges preside over the “case.” Juror volunteers score the teams based on a number of criteria and the teams with the highest points advance to the Pennsylvania state finals held in Harrisburg on March 29th and 30th. The winner of the Pennsylvania competition advances to the National Championship in Athens, Georgia in May.

Our firm would like to thank the Young Lawyers Division for the opportunity to participate in a fun and engaging event and we look forward to many opportunities in the future.
