Founding partner, Richard R. Maguire, Esq. continues to give back to our community. Richard is the lead volunteer to help coach the Bethlehem High School Mock Trial Team.
Nearly thirty (30) Bethlehem High School students have joined the Team and are all dedicated and enthusiastic to participate. Practices are held in an actual court room to help the students prepare for a trial in February, 2016. The time consuming club provides the students with a unique opportunity to receive training directly from local judges and lawyers, including Richard.
Along with other attorney advisers, the students will learn trial tactics as well as important ethical considerations.
Bethlehem High School was the Albany County champion in the past and hopes to continue with similar success in 2016.
The Mock Trial Team is excellent training for high school students, many of whom go on to attend outstanding universities.
