Eight Trinity Lutheran High School students recently participated with 16 other teams in the Indiana Mock Trial regional competition conducted in Marion Circuit Court at Indianapolis.
Students assigned roles as attorneys for Trinity Lutheran were Seth Wooten, Mandan Langley, Sydney Stuckwisch, Kayla McKain and Connor Galyen, according to a news release from the school. Trinity student witnesses were role-played by Job Willman, Jackson Cain and Tyler Wenig.
The purpose of the program is to stimulate and encourage a deeper understanding and appreciation of the American legal system, according to the Indiana Mock Trial Program website at inmocktrial.org. The program also is designed to allow students to acquire skills in critical thinking and reasoning, public speaking, teamwork and citizenship.
