Description: Mock trial allows students in the 9th grade and above to learn more about the justice system, while also honoring their oral presentation skills. Team members work together over several months to prepare for trial: they develop case strategy, draft opening statements and closing arguments, write effective direct and cross-examinations, and create memorable witness performances. This work and preparation culminate in February and the Santa Clara county competition, where students make their way to the Santa Clara Superior Courthouse to compete against other Santa Clara County high schools!
