Los Angeles County Mock Trial

People v. Shem DVD - 2014-2015 Case Now Available for Purchase

Welcome to the 2015-2016 season of Constitutional Rights Foundation’s Los Angeles County 38th Annual Mock Trial Competition. The Los Angeles Mock Trial Program is an academic competition in which senior high schools and middle schools compete at the county level. This year, participation is expected to include over 2,000 students in Los Angeles County. The trial itself is a simulation of a criminal case, in which students portray each of the principals in the cast of courtroom characters. Student teams study a hypothetical case, conduct legal research, and receive guidance from volunteer attorneys in courtroom procedures and trial preparation. Students participate as lawyers, witnesses, court clerks, and bailiffs, thus acquiring a working knowledge of our judicial system. The Mock Trial Program encourages young people to develop their analytical abilities and communication skills while gaining increased self-confidence.

We hope you are ready for a great Mock Trial season. We wish you good luck this year, and we look forward to working with you.
