Stamford Judicial District Courthouse to Host the Regional Bar Mock Trial Competition

The Stamford Judicial District Courthouse will host the 13th Annual Regional Bar Mock Trial Competition on Friday, March 28, 2003 from 11:30 a.m. until 5 p.m., in Courtrooms A, B, C, E and F on the sixth floor.

Students from the following high schools will participate: Stamford, Westhill, Norwalk, Brien McMahon, Greenwich, Trumbull, Laurelton, and New Canaan. The students will present arguments in a hypothetical case called "Neighbors Against AIDS Homes v. Our House," involving a dispute over having an AIDS residence in a particular neighborhood. Students act as both attorneys and witnesses, and each high school will try the case twice - once for the plaintiff, and once for the defendant.

Many area attorneys will participate in the competition as judges and as coaches for the high school teams. Additionally, Judges John J.P. Ryan and Frank H. D'Andrea, Jr. will be participating. The competition is coordinated by Attorney Maurice K. Segall.

This competition is part of the statewide mock trial competition that is sponsored by the Connecticut Bar Association and the Connecticut Consortium for Law and Citizenship Education. The final round of this competition will be held in the Supreme Court courtroom on May 1, 2003 -- which is Law Day.

Media organizations wishing to bring a camera into the courtroom to cover the Annual Regional Bar Mock Trial Competition should fax a request to the External Affairs Division at 860-757-2215. Please include a phone number and fax number with your request. Fax transmissions may be sent at any time of day from the time of the release of this advisory until Wednesday, March 26, 2003 at 5 p.m.
