Law firm to host mock foreclosure trial

The law firm of Jimerson & Wilson, P.A., will host a mock foreclosure trial put on by the Mock Trial Team of Florida Coastal School of Law on Friday, April 8, at the Florida Coastal campus. The trial is hosted in conjunction with the First Coast chapter of the Risk Management Association (RMA).

The goal of the trial is to educate legal, real estate, and financial service professionals about the complexities of the legal system, the basic jurisprudence of foreclosure laws, and the challenges facing attorneys in the foreclosure process. The audience will learn about the Florida foreclosure legal system through a simulated courtroom experience that closely mirrors that of real world proceedings.

“We are thrilled to host this trial with RMA and the law students of Florida Coastal,” said Charles B. Jimerson, managing partner of Jimerson & Wilson. “This mock trial gives people, especially banking professionals, a unique opportunity to witness firsthand what would happen in the courtroom for a contested foreclosure trial.”

The trial will run from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and will include refreshments and networking opportunities. Tickets to the event cost $20 per person. A majority of proceeds from the event benefit the Florida Coastal Mock Trial Team.

To register for the event, attendees may contact RMA Treasurer Steve Sprecher at (904) 361-5288 or ssprecher@bbandt.com. Deadline for registration is April 6.
