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.

Congratulations to Team Indiana from Trinity School at Greenlawn on finishing 11th at the 2019 Mock Trial National Championship!
