Wesleyan Mock Trial Info Session

tom-cruise-a-few-good-menZenzele Price ’18 asks if you’re the next yung hotshot lawyer like this guy to the right:

Want an excuse to suit up and travel around the East Coast this school year? Have you ever wanted to knock a table over while screaming OBJECTION, YOUR HONOR? Do you keep a scrapbook of Hillary Clinton’s pantsuits in your Hope Chest? Do you enjoy acting, writing, attention, judgement, road trips, crippling competition jitters, practicing speeches in the mirror, winning, sometimes not winning, fact patterns, bow ties, arguing, HIGH INTENSITY SITUATIONS, thinking on your feet, being-over-caffeinated and under-prepared, and/or devoting yourself body and soul to the letter of made-up law?

If any of the above applies to you, then come to the mock trial info session THIS SATURDAY! Come for the fictional case, stay for the very real friendships, tournaments, and pantsuits.
