Lesson plans are carefully developed and tailored to help mockers of all levels improve their mock trial abilities and overall confidence levels. In addition to small group sessions, instructors will work one-on-one with students to improve all aspects of their presentation, argumentation, improv and critical thinking abilities.
Learning by doing
We believe in learning by doing. Students will spend the first few days learning about mock trial, but will spend most of their time working on a practice case to conduct an actual mock trial on the last day of the program. Before then, we encourage as much practice as possible- that includes running scripts, arguing objections and doing speech drills.
Universally useful skills
The beauty of mock trial is that the skills you learn are applicable no matter where you go. The tangible skills that we emphasize- confidence in public speaking, the ability to think quickly on your feet, a formulaic way to solve problems, just to name a few- are useful not just for future lawyers, but for everyone.
College admissions mentorship
All of our instructors are students at some of the top universities in the world. In addition to a formal college admission panel we hold where we go over our own college admissions experiences, students are free to ask any questions to our instructors at any point during the session.
