The Mock Trial team will compete in the Massachusetts Bar Association Mock Trial Tournament. Each year the Mass. Bar Association runs a high school mock trial tournament based on a set of case materials that the bar association publishes. Students study the case and then divide up into lawyers and witnesses to prepare each side of the case. Our school team competes against teams from other schools in trials that take place in real courtrooms before real judges.
Mock Trial is a competitive activity that simulates the Massachusetts Court System. The team consists of students, who begin meeting in November. Trials begin in January and continue through March. Each team will participate in at least three trials. The top team in each region advances to the "sweet sixteen" level of the tournament. From there a single elimination tournament results in a state champion being decided. The state winner wins the right to go to the National Mock Trial tournament.
