Monterey County Students’ Performance in the Lyceum 2015 Mock Trials

MCAET’s special presentation of the Lyceum’s Annual “Mock Trial” Finals is available to view online and on the air! Watch students from Carmel High School and Pacific Grove High go head to head in a courtroom case with Honorable Judge Robert A. O’farrel.
