PRLog - May 11, 2014 - CHARLESTON, S.C. -- Attorney Evan Guthrie of the Evan Guthrie Law Firm in Charleston, South Carolina helped to judge the Charleston School Of Law Trial Advocacy Board Internal Competition held on location at the Charleston School Of Law campus in Charleston, SC on the afternoon of Friday November 8th 2013. Mr. Guthrie was joined by other practicing attorneys in Charleston, SC as judges for the contest. Students from the Charleston School of Law competed against each other to help determine their future participation in travel mock trial competitions against other law schools. Attorney Guthrie helped to judge a full trial containing opening statements, witnesses being directed and crossed by both sides, and closing statements. Mr. Guthrie was one of three scoring judges that were seated in a jury box type seat that the student attorneys argued towards. Attorney Guthrie scored the performances on a variety of factors including persuasiveness, courtroom demeanor, and body language. The trial took about an hour to perform.
