Mock Trial

Advisor:  Mrs. DaSilva

The New Jersey State Bar Association sponsors mock Trial.  It is a team competition between schools. Each team is provided with a real court case to reenact.  Each student is given the opportunity to assume the role of both the plaintiff and the defense.  The teams consist of schools in the Sussex County Interscholastic League, with the competition held at the Sussex County Court House in front of a judge.  The winning teams in the county move on to compete at the state and national level.  It is often the case that the students involved in Mock Trial follow a career in Criminal Justice and/or law.
