The Mock Trial Competition recreates the dramatic centre of the justice system by allowing participants to play roles in trial, including prosecutor, defence counsel and witness. Students learn the basic facts about court room procedures, rules of evidence and various legal concepts inherent in a criminal trial including "innocent until proven guilty".
Mock Trial will begin meetings in January of 2015. Stay tuned for announcements.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Ms Onda or Ms Haugen.
Meeting on March 3rd at 3:35 in A44
