High School Mock Trial Coaches Needed

Posted By Mark Shem, Thursday, October 22, 2015

The annual Santa Clara County High School Mock Trial program is in need of volunteer attorney coaches to help students from across Santa Clara County learn about trial techniques, the law, and critical thinking using a hypothetical criminal case.  No prior experience is needed and the amount of time you volunteer is up to you and the school. 

At a minimum, attorney coaches help students draft opening statements, direct and cross-examinations, and closing arguments.  Additionally, they help students understand simplified rules of evidence closely patterned on California’s Rules of Evidence.  Volunteer coaches will be matched with schools in need of coaches.  Currently, the following schools need an attorney coach: 

Basis Independent

Castelleja High

DCP Alum Rock

Saratoga High

Wilcox High 

The students will be testing their legal skills in a four round tournament in February, 2016.  There are three further elimination rounds culminating in the final round set for February 23, 2016.   

If you can find to help our youth, please contact the Chair of the Law Related Education Committee at LRE@sccba.com.
