The students receive a case in October and work as a team to become witnesses and attorneys as well as strategize the case. District competitions take place across the state and the top finishers in those tournaments will continue on to the state competition in March. Throughout Mock Trial, students will gain public speaking skills and critical thinking experience in addition to working closely with their peers as a team.

Support Youth & Government and Volunteer

Whether it’s volunteering as an Youth Legislature advisor, being a rater at one of our Mock Trial competitions, or helping at an event; volunteering is an excellent way to be involved with our programs. We have many volunteer opportunities and would love to get you connected.
