Mock Trial

Willamette Mock Trial Team

Mock Trial is a competitive, team activity, where students conduct trials based on real court cases. By portraying attorneys, witnesses, and other court officials, students learn the functions of our legal system while developing critical thinking and public speaking skills.

  • Weekly practices, starting in November, where students learn the details of a case and the court procedures of a trial.
  • Mini-Mock Competition in December
  • Regional Tournament in March, with top teams then competing in State (and potentially Nationals).

A role in Mock Trial can be a stepping stone to a legal career, or simply an outstanding addition to a college application or job resume. This club is the perfect place for intelligent performers with a desire to push their abilities to a higher level.
