Preparing today's students for tomorrow's world in a caring learning environment

Mock Trial

Mock Trial is designed to introduce students to our legal system by providing a challenging academic competition where they can put their inferencing skills to the test. Mock Trial is an imitation of a real trial practicing skills such as critical thinking, argument formation, debate, public speaking, acting, and skills relevant to practicing law.

The team is made up of attorney’s for the plaintiff, attorneys for the defendant, and witnesses. As a team they compete against the opposing side, of a team from neighboring schools to win the verdict and performance.
