The Georgia Mock Trial Competition helps high school students gain an understanding of the legal system by providing opportunities for teams of high school students to compete in “mock trials” where the participating students assume the roles of lawyers and witnesses in a hypothetical court case. The Georgia Mock Trial Competition is sponsored and conducted by the Young Lawyers Division (YLD) of the State Bar of Georgia. Held every winter, the Georgia Mock Trial Competition is designed to help participating students improve their proficiency in such basic skills as listening, speaking, reading, and reasoning. Mock trials help students gain a basic understanding of the legal process through which our society chooses to resolve many of its disputes. And, while obtaining this knowledge, high school students develop useful questioning, critical thinking, and oral advocacy skills, as well as significant insight into the area of law in question.
