MockTrialJoin the MBA’s Mock Trial Program

Interested in learning how a real courtroom operates? Sign up to participate in the Massachusetts Bar Association's annual Mock Trial Program.

Each year, the MBA’s Mock Trial Program places high school teams from across the state in simulated courtroom situations where students assume the roles of lawyers, defendants and witnesses in hypothetical cases. More than 1,000 students across the state participate in the competition, and more than 100 lawyers from communities around the state preside over the mock trials as judges, and coaches for the students.

Visit for more information about the program and how to get your high school involved.

The Mock Trial Program is administered by the Massachusetts Bar Association, with support from the Massachusetts Bar Foundation.
