RRD Partner Serves as Judge for State-Wide Trial Competition

Recently, Drew Luca, a partner in our New Jersey office, served as a Judge presiding over the Vincent J. Apruzzese Mock Trial Competition. The 2013 Competition, in its 31st year, is a state-wide initiative supported by New Jersey’s 21 County Bar Associations.

The event is geared towards demystifying the operation of law and to help high school students throughout New Jersey increase leadership skills through the active preparation for, and participation in, this competition.

Following the weekend trial, held at the Burlington County Court House in Mt. Holly, New Jersey, Drew conducted a Question and Answer session while sharing compliments and pointers with the students. “Its impressive to see how much effort the students put into this competition each year. Their many months of hard work and the attention to detail that each team gives to the legal nuances written into the fictionalized case being argued is apparent and they should be commended. This annual competition is truly an enjoyable event for the students and the Judges alike.”
