Mock Trial

The Mock Trial Team tries a case each year, alternating between civil and criminal trials. In 2021-22, it was criminal; in 2022-23, it will be civil. We prep in the fall, playing a scrimmage or two with other schools starting in about November; we participate in a university-sponsored tournament in January, and we got to the KY Regional Championship in February. If we make it in the top 8 teams, we go to the State Championship tournament in March. Last year we were knocking at the door and missed the cut; this year, we plan to make it, with even better performances. We just brought the team back, after a 7 year hiatus, and rebuilt with good success.

It’s part law, part acting—anyone is welcome; you can a be a witness or a lawyer. We only lost one senior and are looking to recruit. Come join us. We get to work with real lawyers, judges, and law school students. It’s fun.
