Show Notes

Editor's note: this episode was recorded back in mid-December but took a few weeks to finish due to some editing challenges. On the latest episode of The Mock Review, Ben and Drew are joined by Thom Scher and Jack Seigenthaler of Stanford Mock Trial to break down the case changes, what's behind Stanford's recent rise to the top of AMTA, and whether the style differences in west coast mock are overhyped. Ben and Drew also discuss the end of the fall season and the results of the survey dealing with how to get more teams to host for AMTA.
