The Middle School Mock Trial (MSMT) Program is a hands-on exercise in learning about due process. Students representing attorneys and witnesses for both sides of a fictional case role play that case being tried in court. The students are guided in their case through support of their teacher and attorney coaches. The program teaches the legal process and trial procedure.
This year SMS participated in their first regional competition. Taking 2nd place, they were able to advance to states in Columbia, SC for a two day competition.
The Mock Trial Team consists of aprox. 15-20 motivated students.
This club is sponsored by Amanda Herath & Jessica Peyton
