Statewide competition is co-sponsored by the New York State Bar Association's Committee on Citizenship Education, the New York Bar Foundation, the New York State Education Department, and county bar associations throughout the state. Bishop Timon - St. Jude's Mock Trial team joins approximately 40 other Buffalo Area school teams each year. The competition is tough but also a great learning experience.
The team of students has the opportunity to play the role of both the lawyer and the witnesses in the same case, which is argued by all New York State Mock Trial teams. Timon has been to the quarter and semi-finals in past years.
