25th Annual High School Mock Trial State Championship Trial, March 26

R.S.V.P. by Friday, March 19

On behalf of the Mock Trial Committee of the Massachusetts Bar Association, we invite you to attend the 25th annual High School Mock Trial State Championship Trial, scheduled for 10 a.m. on Friday, March 26, in the Great Hall of Boston's historical Faneuil Hall.   

This year's teams will try a civil case in which the plaintiff suffers a substantial financial loss after investing her/his daughter's college funds with a financial advisor at a brokerage firm. The case focuses on whether the firm, and/or the advisor are responsible for those losses. This case gives participants an opportunity to learn about the importance of decision-making in the investment of personal funds and provides the students with a glimpse of the potential for pitfalls when taking chances with risky investments.

We hope that you will attend the State Championship Trial to experience the grand finale of this wonderful program in historic Faneuil Hall.

If you decide to attend, due to space limitations, R.S.V.P. no later than Friday, March 19, to Amy Osborne at (617) 338-0570 or [e-mail mocktrial].

The law firm of Brown Rudnick has sponsored the statewide Mock Trial program since 1998.
