Mock Trial Team

The Millbrook High School Mock Trial Team presented and argued this year's mock trial case at the Federal Bankruptcy Court.  Chief Judge Cecelia G. Morris presided over the case.  In addition to the thrill of presenting a full trial, complete with the dramatic formality of a fully staffed federal courtroom with technological amenities, the members of the Mock Trial team were given a personal tour of the court and an opportunity to visit with the Chief Judge in her chambers, where she shared photos of herself with Senator Elizabeth Warren and Supreme Court Justices Sandra Day O'Connor and Sonia Sotomayor.  This inspirational experience was a “jaw-dropping” experience for the members of the Millbrook Mock Trial Team. Cynthia Rosenzweig is the advisor the Millbrook High School Mock Trial Team.
