About the Course
Welcome to Mock Trial where we will spend 2-3 weeks learning about the court system (so it's fine if you never understood what "overturned" means). From there, we will have several rounds of short to medium length mock trials, some judged by individuals and some by juries. Every student will have a role for each trial and some will require preparation outside of class. This is a reprise of the Mock Trial class from Fall 2022, but open to new and returning students as the cases we study will be different from last fall.
***Students will need to practice or prepare their arguments for 1-2 hours between classes, depending on which role s/he is assigned. Students have the chance to choose roles. ***
