What is Mock Trial?
Mock Trial is a competitive activity where students receive case materials once a year and then put together a case stratagem for both the plaintiff/prosecution and defense, depending on the merits of the case created by the American Mock Trial Association (AMTA). Throughout the year, students will compete as either side and will compete as either attorney advocates or witnesses. The competition season lasts from August until as late as March. As well as the regional and national competitions, invitational tournaments are hosted throughout the country.
