The purpose of the Marriotts Ridge Mock Trial Team is to provide extensive knowledge on the subject of law and debate. It will also provide knowledge on important aspects of public advocacy and speaking, especially in cases of criminal trials. Furthermore it will instill a sense of challenge and constant rebuff against their point of view. It will enhance a student's ability to understand the rights, processes and procedures involved in both real and simulated court trials. Student Membership: Anyone is eligible to become a member of the Mock Trial Team. However, to participate in competitions and include this club on their transcripts, members must attend 3/4 of the weekly meetings. This amount is subject to change. Projects: Projects will include competitions and rigorous in-school mock trials.
