These activities may assist your team and/or individual team members in building mock trial skills during the off season. None of these events, classes or activities are endorsed, sponsored by or coordinated through the Georgia High School Mock Trial Committee (GHSMTC). Students should do their own research into each program before making any application or payment of money. Caveat emptor.
If a team and/or student chooses to participate in one or more of these programs, that team and/or individual student may not present themselves as a representative of the Georgia High School Mock Trial Committee and no GHSMTC program funds will be expended to support team and/or individual student participation in any of these activities.
If a mock trial team made up of students who have participated or plan to participate on a GHSMTC-affiliated mock trial team choose to participate in an invitational tournament not affiliated with the GHSMTC or the National High School Mock Trial Championship, the primary coach of that team must disclose that participation to the Georgia mock trial office at least seven business days before the start of that activity. Students who have participated or plan to participate on a GHSMTC-affiliated mock trial team and who participate as an individual in summer law-related education classes or camps need not disclose that participation to the mock trial office.
