Mini Mock Trial

Elementary Mock Trial

The elementary mock trial class is structured similarly to the middle school mock trial class.  Students begin by studying the specifics of a case.  At the elementary level, the case is based upon a fairy tale or other famous children’s story.  After having immersed themselves in the details, students take on the roles of participants in an actual criminal prosecution, playing the parts of witnesses, prosecutors, defense attorneys, bailiffs and more.  The coach guides the students through the process of executing each of these roles, and, in the process, the students learn a great deal of courtroom procedure, including objections, evidentiary rules, etiquette, and other matters of jurisprudence.  The class culminates in an intra-school competition against an elementary mock trial team from one of Kudos’ other locations.
