Meyer, Suozzi, English & Klein, P.C. partners Donnalynn Darling and Kevin Schlosser participated as trial judges in the 2009 New York State High School Mock Trial Tournament sponsored by the New York State Bar Association’s Committee on Law, Youth and Citizenship and The New York Bar Foundation.
This year marks the 26th year of this successful program, designed to teach high school students ethics, civility and how to be zealous but courteous advocates for their clients. Ms. Darling, a seasoned trial attorney and head of Meyer Suozzi’s personal injury practice, has also devoted considerable time to the program in past years, coaching high school trial teams and mentoring the students. Mr. Schlosser, head of the firm’s litigation department, also teaches trial techniques at the National Institute of Trial Advocacy. They appeared in February as judges in the Nassau County Supreme Court for the Mock Trial Tournament.
