City of Victoria Municipal Court Judge Vanessa Heinold judged the Texas Tech University School of Law’s Advanced Mock Trial competition on Oct. 16. Heinold is a graduate of the Texas Tech University School of Law, and the Board of Barristers law student organization invited her to participate in the mock trial. Heinold and two other invited judges presided over the mock trial and made rulings on motions and objections by the second-year law students. At the end of the trial, Heinold and the other judges evaluated the participants’ performances, declared a winner and offered feedback to each of the students. Heinold has judged numerous local mock trials in coordination with K-12 schools over the years.
