MOCK TRIAL

MOCK TRIAL
  • Mock Trial teams will litigate an actual legal case each year. Teams are provided with the case materials which include the problem and rules of evidence and procedure; after students study the hypothetical case, they take the case to "court." A panel of practicing attorneys and judges hears the evidence and arguments, evaluating the performance of the lawyers and witnesses.  This is a great place to work on public speaking and critical thinking skills, meet new friends, and learn basics of law and courtroom procedure.  Awards include certification of participation; possible Varsity letter; district, regional, state and possible national awards.  Informational sessions will be held in mid-September, before the Activities Rush; tryout information will be distributed at this time. Posters will be displayed around the school at the start of the school year with detailed information.  There is a $60 participation fee.

  • Practices Tuesdays at 6:00 - 8:00 pm in Room 213 from October - February
