National Mock Trial Competition

Club Description

Mock Trial allows students to acquire a knowledge of our judicial system, develop analytical and communication skills, working in teams, and gain an understanding of their individual obligations and responsibilities to our society.

 

Each year, we are given a new set of Mock Trial materials based on an important issue facing America's youth. This includes:  a hypothetical criminal case , summaries of case law, witness statements, official exhibits, and simplified rules of evidence,  and competition rules and guidelines.

 

The students work side by side with judges, attorneys and teachers studying the case packet, preparing strategies and arguments for trial.  The students compete against various other school in the county toward competing at the state level.

 

 

 

 

Blue Ribbon Awards

Blue Ribbon Awards are awarded to those students who stood out to various Judges and Scoring Attorneys.  These are students whose presentations are above average and merit special recognition.  Only one student for each role is awarded each year.
