Mock Trial 7-9

Students take on courthouse roles such as attorneys, witnesses, and jurors in a mock trial presided over by an instructor-judge.

Students study and engage in trials, from jury selection, opening statements, examining witnesses, presenting evidence, closing arguments, and deliberating a verdict.

Classroom discussions address the role of courts in a democracy, the meaning of “due process,” and the nature of justice. Students examine the differences between civil and criminal trials and the prosecution’s burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
