Mock Trial Registration is Open!!!!
The SC Bar Law Related Education Division is proud to announce that Middle School and High School Mock Trial returns for yet another wonderful year and we are excited to open the registration for competition! We invite public, private, and home schools throughout the state to participate in the 2015 / 2016 Mock Trial Competition Season.
The goals of this program are to educate students about the American judicial system and the fundamentals of litigation. Another objective is to increase cooperation, respect and support between the community and the legal profession. Through participation in the Mock Trial program students will sharpen their basic skills such as listening, public speaking, writing, reading, and analyzing. The goal of the Mock Trial program is not to win for the sake of winning, but to learn and practice the meaning of good citizenship in a democracy through participation in our legal system. All students who participate in the Mock Trial Competition are winners.
This is a fun and exciting program for students and teachers alike. The SC Bar will help find an attorney in your community to assist you in your preparation.
Applications:
The Mock Trial applications are available online. Below are the links to the Middle School Mock Trial applications.
