What is Mock Trial?

Mock Trial is an academic activity designed to challenge those who are interested in law, debate, or other forms of forensics. Students are divided into teams and given a court case which they must try as both the prosecution and the defense. Places on the team include both witness and attorney roles.

"The general principles of any study you may learn by books at home;
 but the detail, the color, the tone, the air, the life which makes it live in us,
you must catch all these from those in whom it already lives."

 -John Henry Newman The Idea of a University, 1854
