High School Mock Trial

About the Program

The Minnesota High School Mock Trial Program is an exciting law-related education program that introduces students to the American legal system and provides a challenging opportunity for personal growth and achievement. Your students will exercise their critical thinking and teamwork skills, as well as the basic skills learned in the classroom.

The MSBA is committed to creating an inclusive environment in which every person can participate in the Mock Trial program. Please contact us if there are reasonable accommodations that would allow you to participate more fully. Such requests should be directed to Kim Basting, Director of Mock Trial Program at 612-278-6306.
