Give a little … for the babies!

DeLaSalle is starting a Mock Trial team this year, and we are looking for attorneys to help coach the team. Commitment can be as little as one hour a week, before or after school. The season runs from mid-October through January. Work with students on creating opening or closing statements, direct and cross examinations as well as learning the Mock Trial rules of evidence. Our students are very excited about this opportunity but we need a few extra “legal” hands to help us out! Please come and share your knowledge and experience. If you are interested, please contact the teacher coach of the Mock Trial team, Sheri Hank. Thank you!
