The Law Magnet advances to the state competition with teams from Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, Skyline High School and the School for the Talented and Gifted (TAG). Twenty-four high schools participated in the Dallas Regional Mock Trial competition.
Dallas ISD will also send a courtroom artist to state who won first place in the Dallas Regional competition, Emma Hornbostel from TAG.
