Honors Mock Trial is a national high school competition developed by the Dallas Bar Association that introduces students to the American adversarial judicial system. Cases are written by the Dallas Bar Association and alternate between civil and criminal legal actions. Students analyze the legal arguments within the case, prepare witnesses for direct and cross examination, and present opening statements and closing arguments. Students develop their critical thinking, public speaking, and analytical skills.
PCA's Mock Trial team, Legal Lions, practices during regular course hours and after school. They also attend scrimmages on designated weekends around the metroplex in preparation for the Regional and State competition.
