Riverside Poly High Heading for National Mock Trial Competition
In the Riverside County Mock Trial competition held in March, Riverside’s Poly High edged out Woodcrest Christian School for first place. North High School in Riverside was third, and La Sierra High School was fourth.
Students assumed the roles of prosecutors, defense attorneys, witnesses, defendants, and other courtroom characters. In the pretend case, high school student Beck Martin stands accused of hitting a peer on the head with a rock, then pushing her over a seaside cliff to her death.
Volunteer judges and attorneys helped moderate and score the performances.
“The teams did a good job presenting their evidence,” said Jock Fischer, Assistant Superintendent of Schools for RCOE.
The Mock Trial competition began in 1983. It is intended to teach students the judicial system. The event is co-sponsored by RCOE and Riverside County Bar Association. More than 400 participants from public and private high schools attended.
