National HS Mock Trial

The Florida High School Mock Trial Competition is an academic competition in which a team of 6-8 students simulate the roles of both attorneys and witnesses in a fictional trial situation. Students have approximately five months to prepare for their roles.

Case materials, questions and answers, and other resources are posted on-line by FLREA, Inc. Students compete against other teams in their judicial circuit, and the winner of that competition comes to the state competition which will be held this year in March at the Orange County Courthouse. Some circuit competitions are organized by local contacts. FLREA organizes remaining circuits which operate without local coordinators. This is the most hands-on, intensive learning simulation about the trial process available to high school students.
