Bring the Court System to Life for Students
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

Taylor Hamilton was driving Mom’s car, heading to P-cubed on the night of the big game. Alex Cooper left the game early because the team was losing, as usual. Alex cut through the woods and started to cross Nash Street, behind the high school. When the car and Alex collided, Alex was badly injured. Was Taylor careful enough or was Taylor distracted by friends and a text message? Did Alex’s hoodie cause a problem or did he exercise caution in crossing the road?
