“Thanks to all the volunteers including the more than 163 judges, 46 attorney coaches, 51 teacher coaches and 26 room hosts who made this year’s regional competition possible for 34 teams impacting 456 students statewide on competition day and even more students that did not make it to competition day due to the continued impact of COVID,” said Cynthia H. Cothran, SC Bar Law Related Education Division director. “The Law Related Education Committee and Division appreciates everyone’s dedication, passion, enthusiasm, and time for this fabulous program we call, MOCK TRIAL!”
