Lake Catholic has proudly competed in the Ohio Center for Law Related Education's High School Mock Trial program for decades. Now, since 2018, Mock Trial has been offered as both an Honors class for Freshman through Seniors, and also as an after school club.
Mock Trial is a program where students work on an imaginary court case. Students learn to research through real case law pertaining to the legal issue in our case, build reasoned legal arguments, craft strategic questions for the examination of witnesses, role play as witnesses in the case, and put it all together in a competition in January of each year, against another school.
Mock Trial Objectives
- Improve critical thinking, reading, writing, public speaking and listening skills
- Develop understanding and appreciation for the law, court procedures, and the judicial system
- Understand constitutional rights and responsibilities
- Recognize and reward students’ academic and intellectual achievements
