NP3 Mock Trial and Moot Court teams are having their virtual competitions in February.

“Our NP3 Mock Trial and Moot Court Teams have demonstrated incredible determination, perseverance, and commitment this year,” according to Staci Osborn, coach of the NP3 Mock Trial and Moot Court teams.

To prepare for these competitions, the teams have done scrimmages, which are practice rounds, with other schools.

“In addition, students have taken on the additional work required of participation, despite being so busy with schoolwork and family commitments during this pandemic,” added Osborn. “I am impressed and humbled by their growth this year, and I am eager to see what else these teams accomplish this season.”

Recently, NP3 Mock Trial completed a scrimmage with LPS Oakland R & D. school on Jan. 6 and 7. Another scrimmage will take place on Jan. 23 with Acalanes High School.

NP3 students, parents, and faculty are invited to see the competitions which NP3 Mock Trial and NP3 Moot Court teams have been preparing for this year.
