Mock Trial (MT) | Justice Resource Center NYC
The Justice Resource Center is reaching out to attorneys with an opportunity to work with high school students and attorneys practicing for at least 2 years can earn some CLE credits while doing so.
The NY State Bar Association conducts a statewide mock trial
competition each year. Within NYC, the competition is organized by the
Justice Resource Center.
Five high schools in the Bronx and Queens are
in need of attorney coaches. All of the
schools have competed in the past, but for various reasons their
coaches have not returned this year. Some of the schools would allow
their students to travel to the attorney’s office for after-school
You can view this year’s problem at the
JRC website. The competition trials, which are held in the early
evenings in federal and state courtrooms, begin the last week of
February. If you’d like more information about the program, please
