Mock Trial can be an exciting learning opportunity for all students and is a rich and authentic way to bring civic education and participation into the classroom. Classroom Law Project is here to support teachers who would like to make this program a classroom or school activity. Please check out our resources for Mock Trial in the Classroom below and be sure to contact us if you would like help setting up a mock trial showcase at your school, doing a training with your teachers, or if you simply have questions about how to do mock trial.
