Mock Trial is an exciting learning opportunity for all students, and a rich, authentic way to bring civic education and participation into the classroom. Civics Learning Project supports teachers who would like to make this program a classroom or school activity. Please check out our resources for Mock Trial in the Classroom below, and contact us if you would like help setting up a mock trial showcase at your school, doing a training with your teachers, or if you simply have questions about how to do mock trial.
