It provides students the opportunity to learn first-hand about the law, court procedures and the judicial system while also building interpretation, critical thinking and public speaking skills. Students who compete in the program come away with a greater understanding of not only the principals our legal system is founded on but of themselves and the skills they possess. Students are recognized and rewarded for their academic and intellectual achievements.
