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 Trial Case and supporting materials for the Judicial section can be found on the Resource Portal page in the Trial and Appellate sections or underneath the toggles below.
Teams should study and get familiar with the following:
5th- Trial Case 2017-2018
Attachment 1-Appellate Rules and Instructions 2017-2018
Attachment 2-Appellate Case Materials 2017-2018
