About Mock Trial

Orange County High School Mock Trial Competition

Mock Trial combines law-related education with tournament style competition. Using a criminal court case, students explore current legal and constitutional issues. Each year, student teams from over 40 Orange County high schools enact every role in a trial with the guidance of attorney and teacher coaches. The teams meet this year in November and December for up to eight rounds of competition.  Real judges preside and score the competition.

Mater Dei’s Mock Trial Team is in its tenth year and has made the playoffs 6 out of the last 10 years. Many MD students have won awards for their performances.

Students: Do you want to know more about our justice system; do you want to learn to focus like a laser beam; do you want to earn a varsity letter? Then, Mock Trial is for you. Contact Teacher Coach Mr. Marcos Corona in room 216.
