Teams from 16 Wisconsin high schools will compete in the Wisconsin High School Mock Trial Semifinals at the Dane County Courthouse in Madison on Sunday, March 9, at 8 a.m.
The Mock Trial program provides high school students with an opportunity to act as attorneys and witnesses in a court case developed by State Bar members. In teams, students argue a criminal case before a panel of volunteer attorneys and judges in the regional competitions.
The two finalists will compete for the state title on Monday. The state winner will advance to the National Mock Trial Competition, which will also be held in Madison this May.
Students from the following schools will be participating in the semifinals:
· Beaver Dam High School
· Brookfield Academy
· Christian Life School
