“I was so impressed with the caliber of competition this year.” – Classroom Law Project Executive Director Marilyn Cover.
The 31st annual Oregon Mock Trial state competition was fiercely competitive this year, with sixteen high school teams traveling from as far away as Baker City to hold trials at the Mark O. Hatfield Courthouse in downtown Portland. Two days and three rounds winnowed the competition down to two finalists: St. Mary’s Academy (Portland) and Lakeridge High School. Village Home Education Resource Center came in third, and fourth-place saw a rare tie between Portland’s Grant High School and Catlin Gabel School.
