Oregon High School Mini-Mock

“Mini-Mock” is a friendly, non-scored practice run for High School Mock Trial teams. Mini-Mock gives teams a chance to practice their courtroom moves with a different case from the main competition case of the year. Students receive feedback from judges and get a feel for how they work together as a team in the trial environment. Currently, the main Mini-Mock is held at the Multnomah County Courthouse in downtown Portland.
