About the Mock Trial

Issues of school district liability and negligence

Kyle Wilkins, parent of Chris, a high school athlete who died after taking steroids illegally, is suing the school district for negligence in the death of his child. He argues that Lincoln High School failed to properly supervise the safety of students. The district claims it met its duty and provided the highest level of security possible given its budgetary restraints.

Mock trials developed by the Street Law Project can be used for competitions and/or for mock-trial units in class. Each contains statement of facts, witness statements, evidence and applicable cases on statute. All contain information on types of mock trials, tips on preparing and conducting the trial, simplified steps and rules in a trial, and even guidelines on mock trial competitions.

Mock trials at this grade level are not scripts, but rather give a set of facts and allow witnesses and lawyers to create testimony and questioning consistent with the facts. They typically have about eight speaking parts. They can usually be presented in one class period or adapted to be presented in that period, but most could take more time if it were available. These mock trials are suggested for use with students in grades 10-12.

Other mock trials are also available at the same price. Please visit our full listing of mock trials for more information.
