Issues of domestic violence
Karmia Kahn has accused her husband, Keith Kahn, of striking and threatening her. Mr. Kahn claims that on the first occasion in question he was defending his son from punishment by Mrs. Kahn, and on the second she should have understood that in their religion and culture his actions and words were meant to heal rather than harm.
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.
