Texas High School Mock Trial Competition
Thousands of high school students from across the state participate each year in this highly motivating, energetic, and challenging academic competition! The program provides a great way for students to gain an “insider’s view” of our judicial system, plus, they gain confidence speaking in front of others and have a lot of fun at the same time.
The Dallas Bar Association Mock Trial Committee is responsible for the organization and administration of the statewide high school mock trial program, which was established in 1979. Each calendar year, over 160 schools across the state and approximately 2000+ students participate in this exciting advocacy competition. In addition, there are hundreds of attorneys and judges involved in the judging of each trial of the competition.
PSJA ISD has its five High Schools compete each year. Our Mock Trial teams participate in Mock Trial classes each Friday on a rotation basis as well as a PSJA ISD Mock Trial Clinic each year.
