I am the captain of the Mock Trial team at my school and an avid student of law, yet more often than not, when explaining this to anyone other than an admissions officer, I am met with a blank stare and the question: what is Mock Trial?The simple definition I generally give is that Mock Trial is a mixture between debate and drama where students get to perform real cases in front of real Judges. In reality though, Mock Trial is so much more than that.
