On Dec. 3, four young men took the seats of those before them 35 years ago in GC 5114.
“Once you are here, you are on jury duty,” the judge, better known as Dr. Winston Frost, said, looking to his right at the mock jury made up of students. “This is a semester’s worth of work,” he said.
The four men seated before him were serving as prosecuting and defense attorneys in a mock trial for the Trial Advocacy class. The event served not only as their class final exam, but also as practice for the spring semester when ORU will begin participating in the Intercollegiate Mock Trial Competition. They are looking for new members.
