CR J 3000 - Mock Trial

1-6 Credit Hours
This course involves students adopting the roles of both lawyers and witnesses in “mock” civil and criminal cases.  Students will be expected to participate at local, regional, and national competitions, and in doing so will acquire first-hand knowledge of what it is like to be both an attorney arguing a case before a judge, and a witness on the stand providing testimony. In addition, students will gain valuable experience in preparing opening statements and closing arguments, writing briefs, cross-examining witnesses, and providing authentic, credible testimony.
Note: Any combination of courses in this series may be repeated for a maximum of six credit hours.
