David Lacher, a New Rochelle attorney specializing in business, real estate, wills & estates, will sit as judge at the 16th Annual Yale Mock Trial Invitational Tournament today in New Haven. Lacher is a long-time member of the New Rochelle Board of Education. Lacher also serves on the board of the New Rochelle Industrial Development Agency.
“Looking forward to it”, tweeted Lacher before heading up I-95 this morning.
The 16th Annual Yale Invitational will take place on December 3rd and 4th, 2011 in New Haven, CT.
The event is organized by the The Yale College Mock Trial Association. The first event was held in 1996. It has become the largest intercollegiate invitational mock trial tournament in the United States.
During the course of the tournament, teams of approximately eight students will compete in four rounds, twice as plaintiffs and twice as defendants, in a hypothetical case in which parents sue a defendant for allegedly hitting their son with his vehicle while driving drunk. Attorneys and judges from throughout Connecticut have volunteered to adjudicate the rounds.
The public is invited to observe the mock trial.
