SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The Mock Trial program places high school students in real courtroom settings before actual state and federal judges, according to organizers. In those courtrooms, the students assume the roles of lawyers and witnesses facing off on a hypothetical case.
While judges donate their time presiding over the mock trials, attorneys from different practice areas also donate many hours scoring the trials and coaching the high school students.
The program is one of our legal community’s premier opportunities for students to learn about the justice system and the Constitution.
The mock trials are not open to the public, however, school teachers and students wishing to learn more about the program may attend the competition, if they get advance permission by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
