“I love mock trial! The friendships and personal growth make all the hard work worthwhile. Each week you work to perfect direct examinations, crosses, and jury addresses with your teammates. With the help of your coaches you learn to put together a strong case. This mentoring occurs in a way that you can’t get it anywhere else! Every day during national mock trial team season your hard work improves your litigation skills.”
