Northfield Mock Trials Verdict

Mock Trial Representatives Grace VanVoorst, Savannah Mellies, Madeline Bussman, and Jennifer Salinas Santos join Evan Loe on The Raider Wrap.

The 2022-2023 Mock Trial Season was an exciting one as the team was finally able to compete in person. If zoom school or meetings were challenging, imagine assessing and analyzing a court case all online. After two complex years of that, NHS Mock Trial was somewhat able to get back into the pre pandemic way of things. Northfield Mock Trial is known to be extremely student driven, whether that’s assigning roles or creating arguments. The students are always on the forefront of the process. This can especially be challenging when they compete against schools that are taught by a team of lawyers, but Northfield excels amidst the challenge. It definitely hasn’t confined them as they have made it far into the post season each year, even placing at state in the past. This year the team placed a little short of years prior, but they believe their progress is still in the trending direction.
