Guilty or not?


Mock Trial Varisty Team with their award.

Madison Bergstrom

    Imagine this: becoming a (mock) lawyer in highschool. Learning how to shout objections, how to act, and most of all learning law. Lakeville South has their very own Mock Trial team for this! For the past 17 years, Lakeville South has produced a team of bright students wanting to experience the look of law at a young age. 

On Friday, December 9th and Saturday, December 10th,  Lakeville South had their first actual trial! Their South Suburban Conference hosted at Apple Valley High School. Where each team faced another, going on both sides of defense and plaintiff (prosecution). This year the case students are learned is about a young talented swimmer Jamie Morton who tore their ACL at a swim meet. At this trial our varsity placed 2nd place as well as the JV!

If you are interested in joining the Mock Trial team next year, contact Ms. Hood for more information!
