Mock Trial

Interested in law? Good at acting? Just looking to meet new people? Our Mock Trial team has something for many talented students. Whether you're lookingto build a great foundation for law school or hone your skills in communication and public speaking, the Mock Trial team is a great way to get involved. College Admissions Directors consistently rank membership on a Mock Trail team highest of all extra-curricular activities. Mock Trial offers a wealth of experience in public speaking, critical thinking, persuasive writing, logical reasoning in a creative way:such skills are invaluable, regardless of your anticipated major in college. Few other clubs on campus offer the same friendly environment as the Mock Trial Team. Comprised of under 20 people, we have the opportunity to work closely together and to build strong bonds between members. While we do get down to business, there is a fun aspect to working with your friends on a nearly day-to-day basis. Says our captain, "it's something that you can really get into, and actually forget you're doing work.”

 

Our Team competes both locally and county-wide. Locally, we took first place in a field of six schools at our first annual North Shore Mock Trial Invitational Tournament, held here last November 19th. We look forward to hosting the event again this fall. With regard to the county, we were in the Final Four, competing against the over fifty schools at the Nassau County Bar Association Competition last spring. Coaches are Ms. Liora Ben-Sorek (Lawyer-Coach) and Mr. William Muir (Teacher-Coach).
