February 3 - 4, 2023, Regional Mock Trial Competition

Forsyth County Courthouse hosted the 2023 High School Regional Mock Trial Competition this past weekend.

Congratulations to Alliance Academy, Northview, and Mount Pisgah high schools on placing 1st, 2nd,  and 3rd.  They will move on to the District Competition. The other teams competing included Forsyth Central, Lambert, and West Forsyth.

The Georgia Mock Trial Competition helps students gain an understanding of the legal system by providing opportunities for school teams to participate in academic competitions where players assume attorney and witness roles in a court case. Teams compete in actual courtrooms, with attorneys and judges volunteering to serve as presiding judges and evaluators during the competition. Students are coached in questioning, critical thinking, and oral advocacy skills.
