It’s so much more than a play! Mock Trial students are expected to thoroughly learn a court case, immersing themselves in a role on each of the plaintiff’s and defendant’s sides. Local attorneys and/or judges volunteer their time to coach each team of 8-10 students. Each team meets two mornings per week from 7-8 am (opposite of Show Choir practice days for 7th and 8th grade students) with weekend practices/scrimmages starting in October. The regional competition is near the end of October. For an example mock trial, view the national champion teams compete at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJP45ObH1zk.
