Central Coast High School students are headed to Riverside on Friday to test their abilities in the courtroom. It's all part of the statewide California Mock Trial Finals.
San Marcos High School students in Santa Barbara are hoping to return with the winning trophy for the first time in nearly a decade. Those from Arroyo Grande High would like to bring it home to San Luis Obispo County for the first time ever.
But, no matter which California-based team wins this weekend, the students will walk away with tools for success later in life, according to their teachers.
