PR&A Attorneys Lydia Fabbro Keephart and Christopher DeAngelo Assist The Lawrenceville School In Winning Mock Trial Competition

PR&A attorneys Lydia Fabbro Keephart and Christopher DeAngelo donated their time to assist The Lawrenceville School with their participation in this year’s Mercer County Mock Trial Competition.

The Mock Trial Competition is a yearly event sponsored by the New Jersey State Bar Foundation.  The Competition, now in its 33rd year, is one of the nation’s foremost contests of its kind for high school students.  The competition gives students a "hands-on" look at the legal process.  Through active preparation it brings law to life for students, not only demystifying the operation of the law and court procedures but also helps students increase leaderships skills and further develop skills such as listening, speaking, writing, reading and analyzing.  Students prepared for the fictitious case for months, developing and executing the matter for trial.

The Lawrenceville School team defeated Princeton High School on Wednesday, January 14, 2015 to claim the title of winner in this year’s Mercer County Mock Trial Competition.  As winners of the County level, The Lawrenceville School will represent Mercer County in the Regional Competition that is being held on February 5, 2015 at the New Jersey State Bar Association's Law Center in New Brunswick.
