Mock Trial

2022-23 Case: People V. Franks


The San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools (SBCSS) promotes student participation in work-based learning by providing opportunities for students to engage, collaborate, learn, and thrive in a real-world scenario.

The Mock Trial program is a collaborative effort between the offices of the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools and the County District Attorney’s Office to provide students with working knowledge of legal institutions and the judicial system. Students research a case developed by the Constitutional Rights Foundation and prepare for trial as attorneys, witnesses, defendants, bailiffs, and clerks.

Local judges, prosecutors, public defenders, and private attorneys volunteer their time to provide guidance in courtroom procedure and trial preparation. These volunteers preside over the trials and score the events.

This year, the San Bernardino County Mock Trial will be an in-person event. Schools interested in participating and forming a Mock Trial team open the links below to download information of important dates and the intent to participate form.

This year, 26 teams from 24 high schools competed in Mock Trial.
