Experience the thrill of the courtroom, the exciting life of a lawyer, and what it takes to get into the law school of your dreams! We’ll explore various aspects of law from criminal to civil and everything in between. When we're done, you'll know how to approach a case, question witnesses, and perform persuasive closing arguments. We plan to visit the local courthouse, hear from practicing lawyers, and visit the UGA Law School. Students will also hone their critical thinking and public speaking skills. On the final day of camp, the mock trials will be open for family and friends to attend, and we will post clips of the trial online for later viewing.
