Mock Trial Team Mr. K. Farrow
Mock Trial consists of two teams of 2 student lawyers and three student witnesses (a total of 10 starting roles). The state of New Jersey provides every high school with copies of one fictional case that we prepare and compete against other schools. The winner is determined by a judge who rates the lawyer and witness performances on a scale of 1-10. Other team members have “back-up” roles and are jurors or bailiffs, as needed. The season runs from the last week in October to the first week in February. The team will meet every Tuesday and Thursday after school from 2:20-4:00. The matches take place on Saturdays from 7:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. in late January and early February.
