Every Fall Wisconsin High School students are
given the opportunity to sign-up for mock trial.
The mock trial program is a great way to
introduce high school students to the legal
system, it gives them the opportunity to analyze
and prepare a case 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 will enhance their
public speaking skills as they are presenting
their case in front of actual Judges and
Attorneys. The Wisconsin mock trial program has
been around for 31 years and we encourage you to
participate in this year’s competition.
