Mock Trial

Info about club Since 1983, Maryland high school students have been arguing in courts throughout the state. What are they arguing? Why, the law of course!

At the center of each year's competition is a new legal case - either civil or criminal in nature - that challenges students to think critically about timely issues. Acting as attorneys and witnesses, students portray defense or plaintiff/prosecution and are scored on their performances by judges or attorneys.

The program's objectives are to (1) Further understanding of the law, court procedures, and the legal system; (2) Increase proficiency in soft skills such as listening, speaking, reading and reasoning; and (3) Heighten appreciation for academic studies as well as career consciousness of law-related professions.

Days and times meetings will take place: Mondays at 3 p.m.
