Congratulations to Lynbrook High School for taking first place in the inaugural Hillsdale Stopwatch Invitational, a competition using a student-written case, People v. Freeman. Congratulations as well to the Lynbrook attorneys for taking each of the top prizes for best prosecution, defense, and pretrial attorneys. Nice work also to Hillsdale freshman Natalia Ortega and Isabel Ortega for taking home second place prosecution attorney and third place pretrial attorney, respectively.
We hope to make this an annual event. If you're interested in competing next year, please email Matt Springman at email@example.com.
