Mock Trial

Grades 9 - 12

In Mock Trial teens work with legal professionals in their community to develop an understanding of real life case law and the role of the court system in a democratic society. As part of a competitive team, high school students develop caring relationships with their peers, gain skills in oral advocacy, research and critical thinking. 

The YMCA Mock Trial program is transferrable to schools and other youth-serving organizations.  If you are interested in starting a club at your school, contact us to find out how.
