The Marist Law Association was created by Marist alumni in the legal community to provide an opportunity for professional, personal, and civic growth. Its mission is to foster involvement with Marist High School, its faculty and students, and to further advance Marist’s vocation of educating young men and women for time and eternity.
The events of the Law Association aim to promote its mission with a focus on camaraderie and connection between Marist’s legal community. The Law Association welcomes all alumni involved in the study, practice, creation and adjudication of law.
Through the fellowship, commitment, and charity of its members this Law Association endures.
Mock Trial Club
Led by the Honorable Chris Lawler ’81, Pat Enright ‘94, Jim Lundy ’88, and Mike Golden ’82, Marist High School's first-ever Mock Trial Club aims to provide an educational yet fun experience for students, especially those interested in pursuing a career in the legal profession. As part of the club, students experience the excitement of working in teams, exchanging ideas, setting goals, and examining issues with seasoned professionals. By studying a case and preparing strategies and arguments for trial, students develop presentation skills, analytic ability and team cooperation.
The Marist Law Association named Bob Clifford ’69, founder of Clifford Law Offices, honorary chair of the Mock Trial Club. Bob received the honor for his commitment to Marist High School, dedication to the legal profession, and encouragement of future attorneys.
