Lawrence University Mock Trial members recognized at Regional Tournament

Lawrence University Mock Trial recently competed at a regional tournament in Milwaukee, and two of the members of the group received Outstanding Witness awards. Karl Hailperin ’10 who portrayed crime scene investigator “Mickey McQuiggan” for the plaintiff, was given 17 out of 20 ranks, placing him among the top 12 in a tournament with almost 100 witnesses. Caitlin Fish ’11 played star-crazed janitor “Jan Patel” for the defense and received 19 out of 20 ranks, placing her among the top four witnesses in the entire tournament. Mock trial is optimistic about its chances for success next year. Virtually all of its members are freshmen and sophomores whose first tournament was met with great success.
