Mock Trial Volunteers 2018

Contra Costa County Mock Trial Winning Team
The winning team from California High School in San Ramon.

The Contra Costa County Office of Education (CCCOE) produced another successful Mock Trial during February 2018.

Teams from 15 local high schools work with teacher and attorney coaches to prepare their version of the criminal case from both the prosecution and defense perspective. Students assume the roles of trial attorneys, pretrial motion attorneys, witnesses, clerks and bailiffs. In addition to a competition as attorneys, students also participate in contests as courtroom artists and courtroom journalists. This year the winning team was from California High School in San Ramon. They went on to represent Contra Costa County at the 37th Annual California State Mock Trial in Orange County
