Middlesex Vicinage Hosts Mock Trial Program
The Middlesex Vicinage and the Middlesex County Bar Association are hosting the 2023 Mock Trial Competition.
Mock trials began on Monday, Jan. 23 and continued Tuesday, Jan. 24; and Wednesday, Jan. 25, with finals being held on Thursday, Jan. 26 at the Middlesex County Courthouse, 56 Paterson St., New Brunswick.
Ten private and public schools in Middlesex County are participating in the competition. This year’s program features a complex civil matter with high school students competing against each other as they assume the roles of defendants, attorneys, and witnesses. Superior Court judges and volunteer members of the Middlesex County Bar Association preside over the mock trials, and local attorneys act as coaches.
Winners of the county finals advance to the regional semifinals, where they will have a chance to advance to the state championship.
