Regional High School Mock Trial Competition

Each year, the Young Lawyers Section of the MBA organizes the district and regional high school mock trial competition in Montgomery County, one of the largest in the nation. Teams from approximately 29 area high school teams present their cases in the courtrooms of the Montgomery County Court House, making arguments before actual Common Pleas Court Judges, Magisterial District Judges and Discovery Masters of Montgomery County. Lawyers, law office staff and community leaders serve as jurors and provide feedback throughout the competition. The winning team advances to the statewide competition in Harrisburg.

Jurors are still needed. Click here to view schedule and volunteer.
