BUTTE COUNTY MOCK TRIAL
February 10, 2023
BUTTE COUNTY COURT HOUSE
ONE COURT STREET, OROVILLE CA 95965
With the assistance of a Teacher Coach and an Attorney Coach, the Mock Trial and Competition actively engages students from local high schools. Students experience the excitement of working in teams, exchanging ideas, setting goals, and examining issues while interacting with positive role models from their communities. By studying the case and preparing strategies and arguments for trial, students also develop presentation skills, analytic ability, and team cooperation. A typical Mock Trial team consists of 8 to 20 students.
"Whenever we have Mock Trials in real courtrooms in front of real judges and real people, my heart stops beating for a second. But then with one glance from the people I've surrounded myself for months, the people that I've fought and stressed out with...that one look is enough for my heart to start pumping out adrenaline to overcome any level of stage fright and insecurities."
