Mock Trial

Open to 6th, 7th and 8th Grade

 

The St. Charles Borromeo School Mock Trial Team competes in the annual Constitutional Rights Foundation’s Los Angeles County Mock Trial Competition.  Our middle school students play the courtroom roles in a simulated criminal court case.  Our team competes against other public and private middle schools in the Los Angeles area.  They present their case in an actual courtroom at the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in downtown Los Angeles.  The team of students prepare and present the trial from the perspective of both the prosecution and the defense.  Mock Trial team members play different roles, including trial attorneys, witnesses, clerks and bailiffs.  Presiding judges and attorneys evaluate each team’s performance.
