Finding the Truth

Judge Steve Halsey
Wright County District Court

The New Year brings the start of one of the best extracurricular activities for high school students in Minnesota, the Mock Trial program sponsored by the Minnesota State Bar Association. A dedicated MSBA committee of judges, lawyers, and other citizens formulate a set of facts and a problem that is studied and rehearsed by high school students and their coaches for many months for pretend trials with competing teams. It could be a criminal case, like the infamous Congdon murder in Duluth, or a traffic accident in which someone was killed, or the discipline of a student for a “spoofing” video mocking the principal.
