Mock Trial is an activity sponsored by the New York State Bar Association. Schools create Mock Trial teams to compete with each other. This activity allows students to learn about the law, the legal system and court procedures.
Students are given a fictitious case including the case summary, witness statements, evidence and the law. With the help of a moderator and attorney advisor students then put together opening and closing statements, direct and cross examination questions and present evidence before a judge.
As student role play as attorneys or witnesses, they learn the reality of the legal process, how to question witnesses, introduce evidence and most importantly, how to think on their feet. Mock Trial appeals to students who are motivated, are curious about the legal process and like to “get into a role”.
