Bring the Court System to Life for Students
to sign-up for 2016 High School Mock Trial Competition
Since its inception in 1983, the Wisconsin High School Mock Trial Program has brought our legal system to life for thousands of students.
Using facts and case materials developed by Wisconsin attorneys, students gain a deeper understanding of the court system as they develop their arguments and build their cases.
Students have the opportunity to:
- Analyze and prepare a case
- Present as a witness
- Argue their assigned role
- Receive input and feedback from attorneys and judges
