Mock Trial

Rising Grades 7 to 9

Take on the role of an attorney, witness, judge, or jury member as you learn about the American court system and participate in trials.

Activities include selecting jurors, delivering opening statements, examining witnesses, presenting evidence, making closing arguments, and deliberating verdicts. Discussions address the role of courts, due process, justice, differences between civil and criminal trials, and standards of proof.
