Lee County -- Some potential future attorneys and judges are set to compete for a statewide title. The Lee County High School Mock Trial has won eight straight regional titles.

They leave tomorrow for Atlanta to take on 16 teams for the state championship.

They'll take turns acting as witnesses and attorneys while being judged by professionals in the business. The students work with teachers and attorney coaches to prep them for the mock trials.

"They learn an appreciation and better understanding our how our judicial system operates and also perhaps how difficult sometimes being a trial lawyer can be," said Louis Hatcher.

The Lee County team will represent the entire southwest Georgia region at the state championship.
