Skelton Taintor & Abbott Attorney Sits on Judges Panel for Bowdoin Mock Trial


Attorney Andrew Zulieve, (center) served as a volunteer judge during the annual 2019 Bowdoin College Mock Trial held on October 22nd.   The Bowdoin Mock Trial Program sponsors two teams who work throughout the semester to prepare both sides (defense and prosecution) of the case.  Each year, the American Mock Trial Association provides a case scenario to each participant.  This year, the case was a murder trial; State of Midlands v. Ryder. During multiple trials, student attorneys try the case against another school’s attorneys and witnesses representing the opposing party.

Grace Cawdrey, student president of Bowdoin Mock Trial, says that the event “pushes us to think on our feet, deliver clear and concise arguments, and balance a lot of details. At each successive tournament, I notice that members grow more confident speaking and more comfortable with the case materials.”
