We learned the different values of patent laws when receiving a patent for an invention. We were also evaluated on what we did well and the areas where we could improve.
These mock trials not only taught us the ways of the court room but also other skills we could use in the business world. Being a lawyer means that you must speak clearly and confidently so everyone understands what is being said and they know this is what you think and you’re sticking with it.
These are skills that can also be applied to the outside world and other jobs people may want. Another skill we’ve learned is being ready for anything and how to think quickly on your feet.
These trials are a team effort and you must rely on everyone on your team.
I believe that this is a good program, and I am looking forward to the next set of mock trials next year – and like always the next set of trials will probably be better than the last.
