Philip A. Harley Memorial 2010 Alameda County Mock Trial Competition
Last year we announced that the Alameda County Office of Education had renamed its annual Mock Trial Program the Philip A. Harley Memorial Mock Trial Competition in honor of our recently deceased partner and friend, Phil Harley. This year’s competition has ended with Amador Valley High School the winner. I attended the awards ceremony on March 2 and absolutely agreed with Sheila Jordan, the Alameda County Superintendent of Education, who noted that although only one school could win, there were no losers. The students were incredibly enthusiastic, and in conversations with students and coaches afterwards, they all made clear to us what a wonderful learning experience it had been for them.
The Mock Trial Program is supported by the Allen E. Broussard Scholarship Foundation, some of the proceeds of the annual Law Day Luncheon fundraiser, and by our firm.
We look forward to continuing our close relationship with the Office of Education in years to come, and watching the birth of the next generation of trial lawyers!
