Girls Division Mock Trial
Mock trial is a nationwide high school competition that teaches students how the United States judicial system works by involving kids in simulated court room experiences. Students take on the roles of lawyers, witnesses, bailiffs and clerks and compete in court rooms in the Stanley Mosk Court House before real judges and groups of attorneys who rate their performances
At this year’s competition, Valley Torah Girls School competed through two rounds, earning general praise from the presiding arbiters, the competition’s scorers, and opposing teams alike. Singled out for special achievements were Sharon Ahranoff and Rena Ohana, who received most valuable player acknowledgements from opposing teams and Rena Ohana and Calanit Serur who received special commendations from the scorers.
