Mock Trial Club
Moderator: Mrs. Katheryn Tucker
Mock Trial is a part of a national competition run by the Young Lawyers’ division of the Pennsylvania Bar Association. In October, the Bar Association publishes a civil or criminal case, including a statement of facts, relevant law, motions, and witness statements. Students take that information and work to present the case as Prosecution/Plaintiff and Defense. The team must prepare opening statements, witnesses’ direct and cross examinations, and closing statements. Carroll competes at the Delaware County Court House, where the case is presided over by a sitting Delaware County judge and attorneys serve as the jury.
