2018 MBA Mock Trial State Finals

The 2019 Massachusetts Bar Association's High School Mock Trial Program is looking for attorneys to serve as judges at trials scheduled for January, February and March. If you are interested in volunteering to act as a judge for one of the trials listed below, please contact us. Judges will be provided case materials and a Mock Trial Judges' Orientation video.  

This year, the teams are presented with a criminal case centering around a case of mistaken identity, resulting in a police officer's use of deadly force. The charges are brought under federal law and teams will have to explore and present on issues concerning whether the police officer's use of deadly force was objectively reasonable, and if not, whether the police officer's use of excessive force was willful.
