A Message From Mr. Carver,

Thursday marks the start of the 20th Annual AVUHSD / AV Bar Association Mock Trial Tournament. The simultaneous trials, with actual judicial officers presiding, will run from 6 to approximately 8:45pm on February 14th, February 21st, February 28th, and March 7th at the Michael Antonovich Antelope Valley Courthouse on 4th Street West and Avenue M in Lancaster. You are cordially invited to attend and support your students!


With over 150 students participating, ten teams from local high schools will conduct a trial created by the Constitutional Rights Foundation ( This year’s case, People v. Buschell, concerns a college student found dead at a festival’s campground. The deceased student was planning to report a rival’s apparent violation of a college’s honor code. When the police make the arrest, for 2nd degree murder, that rival and now suspect is carrying a concealed weapon without a license. The fascinating and timely pretrial issue: Is the state’s concealed carry statute constitutional?


We salute you for your hard work and take a moment also to commend and wish well the following mock trial teachers and their teams:


Antelope Valley: Nicole Thompson

Desert: Shay Wallace

Eastside: Mark Cook

Highland: Sandra Gordon

Knight: Kristine Parsons and Aileen Simon

Lancaster: John Butler

Paraclete: Rick McGuire

Quartz Hill: Gail DeGroff

SOAR (Two Teams!) : Stephanie Norton


Schools with mock trial programs but without a team in the tournament draw:
