The Saint James School Freshman Mock Trial Team, coached by Montgomery attorneys Wells Robinson, and Rory McKean reaped high honors for their participation in the 2013 Alabama YMCA Youth Judicial Competition. The team earned Third Place out of a field of 16 teams from around the State of Alabama in the Premier League.  Members of the team received individual honors, including placing in the top three for the most outstanding attorney and most outstanding witness categories, each of which included a field of 48 competitors.  The team’s overall performance earned them the opportunity to potentially compete in the National YMCA Mock Trial Competition in Chicago, Illinois in 2014.
