Mock Trial Training Dates

This Mock Trial training demonstrates how to implement the Mock Trial program for middle and high school students.  The LRE Division continues to build the Mock Trial program with each new year and strives to excite young students through their participation in a simulated trial.  This training was established to give teachers a better understanding of how to participate in the Mock Trial competition in an attempt to remove any barriers keeping a school from participating.  This training can be attended in person on the scheduled training dates, or be accesseed from a computer (brokern into 10 separate segments) any time of the year.  New Attorney Coaches are welcome to attend this training as well.
