The University Mock Trial team engages in trial simulations in competition with teams from other institutions all across the country. Through these trial competitions, students develop critical thinking and public speaking skills, as well as a knowledge of legal practices and procedures. The team will present an abbreviated version of the case they have worked on this year – the State of Midlands v. B.F. De la Porta and Poe Cameron.Case summary: During the annual charity gala for Sohi Children’s Hospital, four masked individuals break into the vault at Miller Tower. During the heist, one of the armed robbers and Emory Sands, a Miller Tower security officer, are severely wounded. Two of the robbers flee via a helicopter on the rooftop and two flee into the streets of Santa Ivo City. After an extensive investigation on the local and federal level, Poe Cameron is arrested as one of the four suspected armed robbers, and local billionaire Berkley De la Porta is arrested for funding the criminal operation.
