What's Included

Students will learn the basics of how a criminal trial is conducted in the U.S. legal system. Using Disney’s movie The Lion King as the fact pattern, students will take on roles as either lawyers or witnesses. They will learn how to examine witnesses, deliver opening and closing statements and apply some rules of evidence. Note: Returning students will be trying the same case but will be given a different role. Andy McCarthy has coached Seattle Prep’s mock trial team to nine state championships and seven top-ten finishes at the national competition. He teaches English, history and government at Prep. He graduated from U.C. Berkeley’s law school in 1989 and practiced law in San Francisco and Seattle before joining Prep’s faculty in 1995.
