Mock Trial

Mock Trial is an educational program, co-administered by the New York State Bar Association and the Nassau County Bar Association. In this program, high school students have the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of civil/criminal law and courtroom proceedings. Objectives of this mock tournament are to:
  • Teach students ethics, civility, and professionalism; 
  • Further students’ understanding of the law, court procedures, and the legal system;
  • Improve proficiency in basic life skills, such as listening, speaking, reading, and reasoning; 
  • Promote better communication and cooperation among the school community, teachers and students and members of the legal profession, and; 
  • Heighten appreciation for academic studies and stimulate interest in law-related careers.
