Mock Trial Event Raises Funds to Help Children
March 30, 2012 – Cooley Law School associate professors Mike McDaniel, Alan Gershel, and Monica Navarro, and Professor and Assistant Dean Lisa Halushka participated in a faculty mock trial event at the school’s Auburn Hills campus on March 20, 2012.
The event was planned and presented by students from the Auburn Hills campus chapters of Criminal Law Society and Mock Trial Board. With the students as witnesses, the professors used their many years of litigation experience to try a mock kidnapping case before Judge William Richards of 46th District Court, in Southfield, Mich. The event raised hundreds of dollars for CARE House of Oakland County to purchase medical supplies for children who are victims of child abuse.
