This summer was also very exciting for upcoming senior and mock trial captain Samantha Gentile. Samantha was one out of the 120 students nationwide accepted to attend the National Student Leadership Conference at Yale University in the field of Law and Advocacy. During this 9 conference, students attended numerous lectures from some of the most renowned law professors in the county, including the Dean of the Yale Law School. Samantha attended lectures not only in law, but in leadership as well; where she learned how to implement management techniques for her team. At the end of this conference, all of the students participated in a mock trial competition. Samantha’s defense team won both of their trials. Samantha was also awarded the “best attorney” award for her outstanding performance in the competition. We are looking forward to seeing the mock trial team in action this year.
