Carolina Center for Civic Education facilitates the statewide high school mock trial program. Each year, the program introduces hundreds of young people to our legal system through the hands-on learning activity of mock trial. Students will spend months preparing to argue a (fictional) case in local courtrooms against teams from other schools at the regional competition on Saturday, February 4, 2017.
The Nesbitt Discovery Academy (website: https://mlnda.buncombeschools.org/) is in need of an attorney advisor for their mock trial program. An attorney advisor would not be expected to be at every meeting; each team and attorney advisor modifies the schedule based on availability.
The competition case this year is a civil case involving an incident between a student and a school resource officer. The case and rules are available for download at http://ncmocktrial.org/competitions/case-materials. There are many additional training resources posted at http://ncmocktrial.org/resources/training-materials.
Please contact Susan H. Johnson, MPH, State Coordinator, Carolina Center for Civic Education at 919-360-0848or at email@example.com if you are willing to volunteer.
