a mock trial

last night I volunteered to be a juror for the Trial Ad class at school, this was the classes “final exam” if you will. They had to conduct a mini trial from start to finish and we as the jury had to deliberate and decide! So we started at 5:00 and we didn’t leave until 10:30, while it was long evening it was actually pretty interesting! It took place in the court house downtown with a ‘real’ judge and by real I mean an actual judge, calling them ‘real’ sounds a little weird… It turns out that out of four trials (with the same case) going on at the same time our jury was the only one who found for the defendants, and talking with the other people on our jury we were really surprised that other juries could have found for the plaintiffs! I guess our attorneys for the defendants were really persuasive… since it was a breach of contract case and I have a contracts final on monday I was in the “zone”! I like to think it was the latter…  
 I really want to take trial ad now!
