More than 400 students representing 26 teams from 24 high schools competed in this year’s county competition.
Mock Trial simulates a criminal case in which high school students portray various courtroom roles including bailiffs, clerks, artists, journalists, attorneys and witnesses, representing both the prosecution and defense.
Students present their cases before a real judge and use constitutional amendments and legal objections.
This event is co-sponsored by the SBC Superintendent of Schools and the SBC District Attorney’s office.
