About the San Diego Mock Trial Competition
The mission of the San Diego County High School Mock Trial Program is to foster understanding and respect for the American legal system and for the rule of law. The program seeks to develop high school students into better citizens by familiarizing them with our Constitution and Bill of Rights through a mock trial competition enhancing students’ ability to think critically, communicate effectively, and work as a team as well as with other members of society.
The San Diego County High School Mock Trial Competition and Program are administered by the San Diego County High School Mock Trial Committee, which is chaired by representatives of the San Diego County Superior Court and the San Diego County Bar Association. Representing local law agencies and organizations, and the state and federal courts, committee members devote hundreds of hours of volunteer time, as well as resources and expertise, to organize and conduct the annual competition.
