Mock Trial Team
Students take on the roles of attorneys and witnesses in a hypothetical case prepared by the American Mock Trial Association. Cases alternate between civil matters (in odd years) and criminal matters (in even years). Teams compete in invitational tournaments in the fall and a regional tournament in the spring. Being on the Mount Mock Trial team can improve your public speaking, help you learn to think on your feet, and develop analytical thinking skills. Oh, and did we mention, it’s fun?!
