Mock trial allows high school students to learn more about the justice system, while also honing their oral presentation skills. Team members work together over several months to prepare for trial: they develop case strategy, draft opening statements and closing arguments, write effective direct and cross examinations, and create memorable witness performances. This work and preparation culminates in February at the Santa Clara county competition, where students make their way to the Santa Clara Superior Courthouse to compete against other Santa Clara county high schools!
