Mini-Mock Trials are shorter versions of mock trial, taking an average of 2-3 hours. They are helpful for teaching about trial procedure as well as teaching the particular content of the trial.
For example, one mini mock trial teaches driving responsibility. Through mini mock trials, students develop an understanding of the people in the courtroom and their functions, the importance of rules in insuring fairness of the proceeding, and the importance of witnesses and jurors in determining the facts of the case. Mini mock trials are appropriate for students grades 5 and up.
