LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Objections could be heard throughout the halls of the U.S. Federal Courthouse today.

Hundreds of high school students -- across the state -- took part in mock trial competitions at both the Federal Courthouse and Pulaski County Courthouse.

This year's mock trial involved an aggravated assault case.

Attorneys and judges scored the students.

The winning team will represent Arkansas at the national competition in May.
