Dos Pueblos High School’s mock trial team — which came in second place in this year’s state championship — recently earned a spot at the Empire Mock Trial World Championship Invitational to be held on October 25-28 in Brooklyn. The 11-student DPHS team will be one of the 36 selected from not only across the country but also from the U.K., Australia, and South Korea. The team will spend the summer readying their new case and raising money for the trip.
