Welcome to mock trial
Welcome to mock trial Mock trial is an exciting club in which we put on cases in front of real lawyers and judges. Each September, the State of New Jersey puts out the current case. We analyze witness statements, create crosses and directs for each witness as well as openings and closings. Each side consists of 2 lawyers and 3 witnesses. On a Saturday sometime at the end of January or beginning of February, we compete against other county schools to win the county championship. The winning team goes to New Brunswick to try their case against other teams.

Voorhees has won the county championship the last 3 years and we are hoping to continue that streak!
