Mean Green Comet Debate Institute

Mock Trial

What to Expect

The MGCDI Mock Trial Summer Camp will provide high school students with the opportunity to learn from local attorneys, high school mock trial coaches and collegiate mock trial competitors. We offer a dynamic program consisting of interactive lectures, trial advocacy skills drills, stop-and-go scrimmages and a competitive mock trial mini-tournament.

Director's Statement

Dear Parents and Coaches,

We believe that success in mock trial is acquired through a balance of proper pre-trial preparation and knowing how to think on your feet. Our program is designed to provide students the opportunity to hone both skill sets through participation in interactive lectures and practical drills. The program will conclude with a complete mock trial judged by local attorneys. We will be using a civil case packet to help students prepare for next year’s Texas High School Mock Trial competition.
