Mock Trial


For many years our Courts have participated in the Mock Trial program for area high schools.  Each year many lawyers and judges generously volunteer their time to help judge or score matches.  I’m hoping that this year we will have the same enthusiastic support for this program.

 The matches start in early January and end by late March.  The early rounds in late January and February are the busiest.  Matches start at 4:00 p.m. and typically are done by 5:30 or 6:00.

Please volunteer to assist with this effort.  If you can help for even one match, it makes a difference. 

Please contact Kathy Schwender in my chambers at 410-887-6510 if you can assist in any way.
