Over the weekend, 29 teams from 23 high schools competed in the state finals of the ArkBar Mock Trial Competition. Friday, Eldredge & Clark attorneys Tonya Gierke, Wayne Young and Jordan Broyles volunteered to judge the students throughout the competition.
"It was an honor and very rewarding to serve as a scoring judge in the Arkansas High School Mock Trial State Tournament," Tonya said of her experience. "It was very obvious that these young adults were dedicated and had worked very hard to prepare for the presentation of their cases. I saw some amazing legal talent!"
Springdale Har-Ber High School's Carolina Team was announced as winners on Saturday, March 4. The final round of competition was between two of the Springdale Har-Ber's teams with Carolina defeating the Navy team in the final round.
Springdale Har-Ber Carolina will represent Arkansas at the National High School Mock Trial Tournament in Hartford, CT May 11-13, 2017.
