To make its Mock Trial, Debate, and We the People programs successful, Civics First needs assistance throughout the school year from attorneys, judges, law students, and educators. No experience is necessary, and we promise that you'll find the experience a rewarding one.



High school mock trials will be held virtually on January 29, 2021, and February 26, 2021, with sessions at 9 AM and 2:00 PM. Trials will follow a brief orientation. Join us from the comfort of your home or office to judge this year's mock trial case, State v. Wilbur Merritt IV, a homicide case with lots of Connecticut flavor. Training on virtual mock trial procedures will be available, too.
To register, please use this link to the Connecticut Bar Association's registration page. Contact Civics First Board President Jon Weiner at [email protected] with any questions.
