Nazareth High School Team Wins 2017 Mock Trial

19 high schools participated in the first round of the District Trials of the statewide Mock Trial Competition, held in the Northampton County Courthouse. Schools from Berks, Lehigh and Northampton Counties presented their cases in a fact pattern about arson. Two teams survived all of the elimination rounds and moved on to the final round – Pen Argyl High School and Nazareth Area High School. It has been many years since the final two teams have both been from Northampton County. The two teams battled it out in the courtroom and, in what was a very close competition, the Nazareth High School team was the winner. They will advance to the Regional Competition in Schuylkill County.

The Honorable Paula Ann Roscioli presided over the final round of competition. The jurors were members of the Northampton County Bar Association along with volunteers from the community.

This year’s competition was organized by the Northampton County Bar Association. The Chair of the competition was Joshua Shulman, Esq.
