Colleen Shea and Elizabeth King of the Cranfill Sumner & Hartzog LLP (Cranfill Sumner) Wilmington office volunteered at the High School Mock Trial Competition for Wilmington on Saturday, Feb. 1 at the New Hanover County Courthouse.

The competition included 10-12 high school teams who tried a criminal case involving an alleged homicide of a suspect by a police officer. Area legal professionals volunteered to judge the competition and served as jurors and presiding judges during the competition.
