The Ohio Center for Law Related Education Mock Trial program provides students the opportunity to learn first-hand about the law, court procedures, and the judicial system while also building critical 21st Century learning skills. Each year volunteer attorneys create an original case around a current constitutional issue important to students. Mock Trial teams work with an attorney or a judge to prepare their case - from both the plaintiff and defense perspectives. Competitions at the district, regional, and state levels are conducted in an actual courtroom and are scored by panels of lawyers and judges.
