Ohio Law School Students Test Skills At Mock Trial


UPDATED: Saturday November 2, 2013 9:46 AM

Second- and third-year students from Ohio law schools are testing their skills at a mock trial competition in the state capital.

The event at the Franklin County Courthouse in Columbus on Saturday and Sunday is put on by the Ohio Attorney General's office.

Public-sector lawyers are serving as coaches for the teams of students, who will be judged by real judges and litigators.

The student teams face off in a pair of trials on Saturday, and the highest scorers move on to Sunday's final round.
