The North Carolina Mock Trial Program believes that teaching high school students about our justice system and trial-by-jury is crucial to preserving our rights as citizens. Our mission is to create engaged citizens through the hands-on learning activity of mock trial, thereby enabling students to gain the civic understanding, self-confidence, analytical reasoning, and communications skills that are vital for tomorrow’s leaders.
The North Carolina Mock Trial Program, a 501c3, administers the NCAJ High School Mock Trial Regional and State Final Competitions and an annual mock trial summer camp to educate North Carolinian high school students about our system of justice and trial by jury. These programs connect student teams with attorney coaches who prepare them for competition. Students develop public speaking and critical thinking skills that will serve them well throughout their lives.
