Our Judicial program section allows students to participate in a mock-trial setting. They act as judges, attorneys, witnesses, and bailiffs in a series of rounds in which they compete against other teams as either the Defense or Prosecution for Trial Court or the Appellant or Appellee for Appeals Court.

Our goal for our Judicial participants is for them to develop a clear and active understanding of the judicial process in both criminal courts and appeals courts. Participants are challenged to work as a team to develop solid arguments for all sides of a case and perform their roles faithfully to replicate real court proceedings as closely as possible.

The Case and supporting materials for each Judicial section can be found underneath the toggles below.

If you are a Judicial Section volunteer, please see the Resource Portal for additional volunteer materials.
