High school teams compete in a series of mock trial rounds where students have the opportunity to participate as prosecution attorneys, defense attorneys, defendants and witnesses in a simulated case developed by the Constitutional Rights Foundation. Students acquire skills in public speaking, critical analysis and deduction.

The Kern County Mock Trial Program is funded with a grant from the Harry and Ethel West Foundation and sponsored by The Kern County Superintendent of the Schools, The Kern County Bar Association (KCBA), Kern County Sheriff’s Department, and Superior Courts of Kern County.
