Mock Trial is a competitive activity designed to teach students courtroom and trial techniques used in litigation. Each year, the American Mock Trial Association creates a fictitious case for middle schools to prepare for competition. It is from this case that students assume roles of attorneys and/or witnesses and compete in a "mock" trial moderated by judges. Through this hands-on experience, students gain a vivid picture of the typical trial protocol, stages, and techniques. Students are critiqued based on their understanding and practice of standard forms of litigation, such as opening statements, direct and cross-examination of witnesses, objections, and closing arguments.
