Mollie Hawes, the newest associate at Miller & Steiert, learns about Mock Trial scoring and our firm’s strong tradition of volunteer public service from Ben Currier. Mollie, a May 2006 graduate of the University Denver School of Law, interned at our firm during 2006 and joined as an associate in March 2007, after successfully passing the state Bar exam.

The three top teams at the end of two days were from Regis Jesuit High School, Kent Denver and Aurora Central High School. Those teams went on to represent Arapahoe County at the state competition in March, and the winner there advanced to the national competition.

Students in Court

Mock trial presentations took place in courtrooms at the Arapahoe County Justice Center, giving students a taste of the nerves and excitement of arguing before a judge.
