Social Studies Extracurriculars include a Vibrant and Successful Mock Trial Team

The 2012 Mock Trial season was a successful one for DC Everest,  and the program continues to grow with the help of the Wausau legal community (namely Greg Strasser, Robyn Kennedy, and Rick Cvyekus).  In an increasingly competitive climate Everest ran two teams at regionals with one of the teams placing second, and losing their only match to the team that took first.

The case this year dealt with a uniquely Wisconsin Northwoods issue, the problem of adverse possession in the form of two families disputing the ownership of a parcel of overgrown land.  Something like this usually only exists in areas that are sparsely populated and so most lawyers never see one of these cases in their careers.  However, given that this type of civil case can be very contentious and easily written to be balanced for both sides, it provided students with an excellent opportunity to hone their analytical and debating skills.
