Mock Courtroom Created at Millsaps

 

To improve the student experience, Harvey Fiser, associate professor of business law at Millsaps College, spent several weeks this summer helping his friend and Norwegian master carpenter Erik Solberg build a furnished courtroom in which the Millsaps College Mock Trial team now practices.

The courtroom is a historic addition to the Millsaps campus. The attorney tables, attorney chairs and witness chairs were reclaimed after being abandoned as a result of federal budget cuts and the closure of the United States federal courthouse in Meridian, Mississippi. The judge's bench and witness stand were custom built using the original tables from the jury deliberation room in the historic courthouse.
