2020 Alaska High School Mock Trial Competition – March 26-28, 2020
The Alaska High School Mock Trial Competition is an annual event sponsored by the Young Lawyers Section of the Anchorage Bar Association. Participation in mock trial not only teaches high school students about the law and courtroom experience, but it also builds critical thinking and public speaking skills. The competition draws teams of 6-9 high school students from around the state to compete in a series of simulated trials, with students playing the rolls of both attorneys and witnesses. Students are provided a set of case materials consisting of legal pleadings, witness affidavits, and exhibits. Case materials alternate between civil and criminal cases. The current problem and past problems are available elsewhere on this page, along with some suggested training materials for high school teachers that may not be particularly familiar with preparing for mock trial.
For more information, please contact Prof. Ryan Fortson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
