An exciting, yet thought provoking approach to learning about one of the cornerstones of a democratic society- the Judicial System. Mock trial participants prepare a simulated civil or criminal case for competition sponsored by the New Jersey Bar Association. Students engage in the role of witnesses, jurors or lawyers in a process that culminates in a series of competitive trial-offs before practicing lawyers or judges in real courtrooms. The team meets weekly for the first semester, and then daily in the week prior to the competition, which begins in late January or February.
