Caddo Parish Magnet High School’s Mock Trial team introduces students to the court system while developing critical thinking as well as public speaking skills. Teamwork is also emphasized. Magnet’s Mock Trial team has competed in the regional and state tournaments for the past 20 years. They have attended the state mock trial competition almost every year and have earned 1st place four times, most recently in 2015. In addition, students have participated in national and international competitions. Local attorneys coach the team.
The Mock Trial team is open to all students who commit to practicing after school twice a week, usually Tuesdays and Thursdays. No past experience is necessary! Be sure to listen to the announcements in late October for the start of the mock trial season. All grades are welcome.
