Region III High School Mock Trial Competition
This competition, typically held in the spring, educates high school students about the law and legal system through a fun, hands-on experience. The student teams study a hypothetical case and prepare a case for both the plaintiff and defense, and then present their case before a judge and a mock jury of attorney performance judges at trial. Volunteer attorney and teacher coaches prepare the students for their “day in court.”
The parishes included in Division III are Ascension, Assumption, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberville, Livingston, Pointe Coupee, St. Helena, West Baton Rouge and West Feliciana parishes.
This year's Region III Mock Trial Competition, hosted by the Baton Rouge Bar Foundation, will be February 23-24, 2018, at the 19th JDC in Baton Rouge Louisiana. The handbook, case materials and rules are available on the Louisiana State Bar Association's website through the links below:
