SOUTHPORT, N.C. – The Brunswick County Teen Court Mock Trial team placed fourth in the 20th North Carolina Teen Court Association State Mock Trial Competition in April. The annual state mock trial competition was held in Concord, NC. Student volunteers competed as attorneys, clerks, and bailiffs against twenty other counties from around the state. Brunswick County Teen Court students practiced their roles for three months prior to the state competition. Teen Court attorney mentors John Kelso and Nancy Adelis spent time mentoring, training, and prepping the students for the mock trial competition.
Brunswick County Teen Court is a partnership program between Communities In Schools and the Brunswick County District Attorney’s Office, made possible through financial support provided by the Juvenile Crime Prevention Council and Brunswick County.
