Venture Mock Trial Takes 5th in International Competition

Venture competed against 40 teams from six countries and 22 U.S states at Empire Mock Trial World Championship in New York City

The Venture Academy Family of Schools high school mock trial team took fifth place at the Empire Mock Trial World Championship in New York City, a competition that allows some of the world's best mock trial teams to test their skills against each other. This year the competition drew 40 teams from six countries and 22 U.S. states, including four teams from California.

This was the first time a mock trial team from San Joaquin County was selected to compete in the competition. Last year the Venture mock trial team took fifth place in the California State Mock Trial Competition. The cases tried in the Empire competition are designed to be more complex than the teams would normally use in state and regional competition.
