May 1, 2023 - Classical Conversations Mock Trial

Today, Chief State Court Judge T. Russell McClelland presided over a mock trial with 8th grade students from Classical Conversations.

The teams did an excellent job preparing and presenting their case.

Mock trials help 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 fictitious court case. Students are coached in questioning, critical thinking and oral advocacy skills.

Well done kids!
