Mock Trial

The Mock Trial Team participates in the Pennsylvania Bar Association's Statewide High School Mock Trial Competition. The team stages simulated jury trials by playing the role of lawyers, litigants, and witnesses, all in an actual courtroom before a judge and jury (composed of volunteer attorneys of the Pennsylvania Bar Association). At the beginning of the season, the team is given a case in which it must prepare to play both roles of plaintiff/prosecution and the defendant. At trial, the jury determines the winner based upon the teams' abilities to prepare their cases, present arguments, and follow court procedural and evidentiary rules.

Prep mock trial has competed in the City Championship finals 9 times and has won the City Championship 4 times. In 2011 it finished second in the state championship final.  On two other occasions the team has finished fifth in the state.
