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 five times, most recently in 2017. 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 mid to late October for the start of the mock trial season. All grades are welcome.
Caddo Magnet’s Mock Trial team will hold its first formal meeting Wednesday, Nov. 1, during Activity Period in room C5. If an interested student is unable to attend, please pick up information from Mrs. Soileau in C-5. Teams will be formed within the next few weeks.
