TESTIMONIALS

  • In my years as a practicing attorney and now as a teacher of exceptional high school law students, coaching mock trial teams has honestly been the most rewarding experience of my life. It is such a pleasure to observe my students learn and master complicated rules of evidence and procedure that are difficult even for college law school students. The many hours of study, preparation, practice, and scrimmaging have fortunately brought awards, legal contacts, scholarships and college acceptance for our Skyline Mock Trial team members, culminating in the Texas High Mock Trial Championship in 2015, as well as eight Dallas ISD championships in the last thirteen years. In my somewhat biased opinion, I can think of no higher academic and intellectual experience for a high school student. Read More

    Joe Wicker, Skyline High School -Learning Director—Law and Mock Trial Coach

  • The mock trial experience is very enriching not only for the students but for coaches as well. I enjoyed watching how the students “evolved” during the process of learning to compete in mock trial. It brings an eclectic group of personalities together and the time spent driving to competitions brought more laughs than anything I experienced in years. Read More

    Kim Keith, Alpine High School -Teacher Liason/Coach

  • Participating in Mock Trial definitely challenged me and pushed me pass my academic limits. It opened new doors in the law field for me and I had a lot of fun practicing with my team and travelling to the competition. I would definitely do it again. Read More
