Experience the thrill of courtroom drama in Mock Trial Camp! We'll explore the life of a trial lawyer as we study the law, learn the legal lingo, and prepare for a final mock trial at the end of the week. When we're done, you'll know how to approach a case, question witnesses, and perform persuasive closing arguments. You'll sharpen your public speaking and critical thinking skills as you advocate for your client in a fictional trial, and even leave with a video of your performance! Open to students ages 12-17.
