CMTA focuses on building effective speaking and strategic skills for students of all levels of experience.
The Championship Mock Trial Summer Academy will provide high school students with the opportunity to learn from local attorneys, high school mock trial coaches and collegiate mock trial competitors. We offer a dynamic program consisting of interactive lectures, trial advocacy drills, stop-and-go scrimmages and a competitive mock trial mini-tournament.
We believe that success in mock trial is acquired through a balance of proper pre-trial preparation and knowing how to think on your feet. Our program is designed to provide students the opportunity to hone both skill-sets through participation in interactive lectures and practical drills. Students will be divided into teams on the first evening and begin analyzing the case. Each student will be given the opportunity to perform as both an attorney and a witness. All participants will construct opening statements, conduct direct and cross examinations and give a closing argument. The program will conclude with a mini tournament judged by local attorneys and law school students. We will be using a civil case packet to help students prepare for next year’s Texas High School Mock Trial competition summer camps for teens
