Mock Trial is an academic club that represents Peak to Peak High School. The club meets in the evenings to prepare for the Mock Trial Boulder Regional Tournament in February. Students are given a case in November, analyze it, determine how to argue both the plaintiff's side and the defense side, and prepare for trial! Students learn how to make an opening statement, direct examination questions, cross-examination questions, and closing arguments. Students also learn how to portray witnesses effectively. Peak to Peak's team has won the Regional Tournament several times, and often advances to the State Tournament in March. Only 22 teams out of 116 teams statewide compete in the State Tournament.
We have lawyers coaching our teams step-by-step and volunteering their time to help our talented club along. We are always looking for more adult lawyers to volunteer their time.
