Mock trial is an amazing program, teaching and enhancing analytical thinking and public speaking skills, as well as poise and self-confidence. Each year, the Arizona Foundation for Legal Services and Education puts out a new mock trial case that is either criminal or civil in nature. Each team is comprised of 6-8 students who present either the prosecution/plaintiff or defense side of the case through playing the roles of attorneys and witnesses in a simulated trial. Each team prepares both sides of the case, including opening statements, direct examinations, cross-examinations, and closing arguments. During a given round of competition, a team will present one side of the case against a team from a different school that would be presenting the other side. Arizona holds a regional competition in early March from which teams have the opportunity to advance to the state competition in late March. The winner of the state competition advances to the national competition in May. Beginning in January, students will be required to attend extended and/or additional practice times in preparation for regional, state, and national competitions.
We will meet on Tuesdays after school from September 11-September 25 for everyone interested in participating. We will hold formal auditions for the team on the evening of Tuesday, October 2. Individuals selected for the team can then submit payment for club participation.
Class Dates: Tuesdays, Thursdays formally beginning Oct 23 – May 3 2018, excluding half days and holidays. Meets Sept 11-Oct 2 for interested students.
