2016-2017 Mock Trial Case Final Version with 2/7/2017 edits 1 LETTER FROM THE CHAIR November 18, 2016 Dear Mock Trial Students, Teacher-Coaches and Attorney-Advisors: Thank you for participating in the 2016-2017 New York State High School Mock Trial Tournament. The tournament is now entering its 35 th year. Thanks to the continued financial and logistical support from the New York Bar Foundation and the New York State Bar Association, New York State continues to have one of the largest and longest running high school mock trial programs in the nation. Equally important to the success of the program is the continued support of the numerous local bar associations across the state that sponsor mock trial tournaments in their counties and the County Coordinators who spend many hours managing the local tournaments. We are grateful to the teacher- coaches and attorney advisors who give their time, dedication and commitment to the program. And finally, our special thanks to the students who devote their time and energy in preparing for the tournament. Every year, we are amazed at the level of skill and talent the students bring to the courtrooms. Congratulations to the 2015- 2016 New York State Tournament Champion, Fayetteville- Manlius High School, who turned in a winning performance last May at the State Finals in Albany.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
