High School Mock Trial Competition
The Most Hands-on, Intensive Learning Simulation About The Trial Process
The Florida High School Mock Trial Competition is an academic competition in which a team of 6-8 students simulate the roles of both attorneys and witnesses in a fictional trial situation. Students have approximately five months to prepare for their roles.
Case materials, questions and answers, and other resources are posted on-line by FLREA, Inc. Students compete against other teams in their judicial circuit, and the winner of that competition comes to the state competition which is typically held in March at the Orange County Courthouse. Some circuit competitions are organized by local contacts. FLREA organizes remaining circuits which operate without local coordinators. This is the most hands-on, intensive learning simulation about the trial process available to high school students. For additional details, please contact Erin Watson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Date: March 15-17, 2018
Location: Orange County Courthouse, 425 N. Orange Avenue, Orlando, FL 32801
