Mock Trial

Mock Trial

The purpose of the Indiana Mock Trial program is to stimulate and encourage a deeper understanding and appreciation of the American legal system. The program provides the opportunity for students to learn the judicial system through a hands-on experience. Through mock trials, students gain an understanding of society's approach to dispute resolution and justice through an experiential learning opportunity.
