Student Life

Mock Trial Team

Mock Trial Began at Holy Cross in the Fall of 1997 as an opportunity for undergraduate students to learn about trial techniques used by lawyers in the courtroom. Students have the chance to take on the roles of attorneys and witnesses in "mock" civil and criminal legal issues.

Participants gain experience and knowledge in areas such as: the stages of a trial, how to argue objections, and how to direct and cross examine a witness. Learning how to present a case clearly and effectively will improve the abilities of both the student who may go on to law school and the student who may not be planning to go on to law school.
