Program Description

Description

Mock Trial Camp is designed for students entering grades 6 -9. In this two-day competition, students will learn about Mock Trial by taking on a legal case, either civil or criminal in nature, that challenges them to think critically about timely issues. Acting as attorneys and witnesses, students portray the defense or plaintiff/prosecution and are scored on their performances by the judges. Presented by Carroll County Public Library and Carroll County Public Schools. 

Program participants will:

  1. Further their understanding of the law, court procedures, and the legal system
  2. Increase their proficiency in soft skills such as listening, speaking, reading and reasoning; and
  3. Heighten their appreciation for academic studies as well as career consciousness of law-related professions

Students should register for the 7/15 session and plan to attend both Monday, 7/15 and Tuesday, 7/16. Parents are welcome to attend the final arguments on 7/16. Full details will be emailed to registrants.
