Mock Trial/Moot Court Club
The Mock Trial/Moot Court Club prepares court briefs and develops arguments to adjudicate cases based on a prescribed fact pattern. Students use rulings from case law, evidence, and witness affidavits to develop these arguments. Students will learn the proper courtroom etiquette for criminal, civil, and appellate cases. They will be required to prepare arguments for the prosecution, plaintiff, and/or defense, as well as the defense, defendant, and/or respondent for the respective case. Although this is a competitive club, students are encouraged to have fun and think critically.
