Judge Lyle Strom High School Mock Trial Program

Each year more than 1,000 students and teachers from schools across Nebraska take part in the Judge Lyle Strom High School Mock Trial Program. Additionally, more than 400 legal professionals volunteer as coaches and judges.

A group of Nebraska attorneys research and author an original case each year. The Case Committee is led by the Hon. Karen Flowers, retired (Lincoln), who served as Chair, and Stephanie Hupp (Lincoln), who served as Vice Chair. Members included Stan Beeder (Lincoln), Kristi Egger (Lincoln), Michael Gooch (Omaha), Lory Pasold (Seward) and Jonathan Urbom (Lincoln).

Cases alternate between criminal and civil suits each year.
