Mock Trial is a civic education program that combines performance-based, law-related education with tournament-style, academic competition. High school students, working in teams under the guidance of volunteer attorney coaches and teachers, analyze the facts of a hypothetical criminal court case, prepare a trial strategy and enact every role in the trial proceedings, as members of either the prosecution or defense.
