Attorneys who have acted as mock trial coaches have been instrumental in the development and success of Marin County’s mock trial program over the years. Mock trial educates our citizens about the important role of law in our society, not to mention inspires a future generation of lawyers. Many members of MCBA have coached or otherwise been involved in the program, including our own Past Presidents Dorothy Chou Proudfoot and Joel Gumbiner, current Board Member and District Attorney candidate Anna Pletcher, and Deputy District Attorney Tom McCallister, to name a few. This past week, David Vogelstein, who coached the highly successful Tamalpais High School mock trial team to a national and several state championships, announced his “retirement” from the mock trial program. Read about David’s retirement in this Marin IJ article.
