Mock Trial Competitions

Have your students share the adventure of a courtroom trial! Our volunteer attorneys will coach and advise 11-17 year olds, preparing them to compete in exciting statewide competitions.

Mock Trial participants take on the roles of lawyers, witnesses, bailiffs, plaintiffs and defendants. In the process, students learn public speaking, debate and drama skills, and the ability to think on their feet. Students with a range of academic skills have fun participating in this program!
