Mock Trial Program Description

Give your child the opportunity to explore America’s legal system and build lifelong public speaking skills. For 8 weeks, your child will improve their critical thinking abilities, learn how to think on their feet, and learn how to make compelling arguments. Students will be coached by nationally and globally ranked competitors in high school mock trial and will be able to experience all the various components of the activity. Students will be presented with a shortened high school mock trial case and will have a chance to play both witnesses and attorneys. Students will learn the proper techniques of performing a direct and cross-examination of a witness as well as basic objections. At the end of the 8-week course, the students will engage in an exhibition trial for parents to watch.
