Attorneys and paralegals from the Charlotte and Wilmington offices of Cranfill Sumner LLP volunteered for regional Mock Trial competitions in their local areas on Feb. 5. They served as judges and jurors during the mock proceedings, which allowed high school students to participate in mock trial competitions and learn about the judicial process.

In addition, Q. Shanté Martin volunteered with one of the participating teams prior to the competition and helped them prepare for the event.



The North Carolina Mock Trial Program promotes the legal profession among high school students statewide by giving them trial courtroom experience in a mock trial setting. Its primary sponsor is the North Carolina Advocates for Justice.
