Grade Level: 9-12
The Colorado High School Mock Trial Program engages students
in trying a specified civil or criminal case in a competitive format.
Students perform as attorneys and witnesses. Mock trial performances
are scored on knowledge and use of rules of evidence, trial procedures,
attorney and witness performances, and the conviction of each side’s
argument (no verdict is rendered). Most schools’ mock trial
teams are extra- or co-curricular, rather than part of a standard
class. Coaching mock trial teams is an excellent opportunity for
local attorneys to support schools and young people.
