Mock Trial Team

The Milton High School Mock Trial Team is participating this year in the Statewide High School Mock Trial Tournament, which will take place in January and February of 2013.  The tournament is sponsored by the law firm Brown Rudnick in association with the Massachusetts Bar Association.  Our high school team, under the leadership of newly elected Captains Mittou Metayer and Sharon Lui, are currently investigating a “murder case” in which a woman was allegedly poisoned by a family member for her extensive fortune.  The students are working diligently to prepare opening statements, direct and cross examination of witnesses, closing arguments, and studying witness affidavits and exhibits to prepare for their first competition against Newton Country Day School.  The team will also be competing against Newton South High School and Belmont High School.  Good luck to the team, and many thanks to high school team advisor Mike Matisoff, and attorney coach volunteers Pierre Monette and Michael Chinman.
