HBA 8th grade Mock Trial Program
From the Houston Bar Association:
The Houston Bar Association conducts a mock trial program at various 8th grade classrooms within the Houston/Harris County area. Law Student Assistants will visit a school once a week over a five-week session to teach the elements of a trial, evidence rules, and general preparation for the trial. This program is unique for two reasons. First, it is non-competitive. Second, the students write the crime story themselves.
