HIGH SCHOOL MOCK TRIAL WORKBOOK FOR 2014-2015 READY FOR DOWNLOADING
An overnight school trip turns into a nightmare for a high school senior who leaves the hotel after curfew without permission. Is the student to blame or the teacher and school district? That's the question students will tackle as they take on the roles of lawyers, witnesses and jurors in the 2014-2015 Vincent J. Apruzzese High School Mock Trial Competition. To download the workbook, which contains the rules, procedures and the new case, and to register for our free, annual Mock Trial Workshop for coaches, click here.
In order to better follow the New Jersey and Federal Rules of Evidence, as well as some of the National High School Mock Trial Championship rules, our Mock Trial Rules of Evidence have been revised beginning with this season. See Parts V and VI of the workbook.
