Wadleigh's Mock Trial Club

The annual New York Statewide High School Mock Trial Tournament provides students with hands-on opportunities to further their understanding of law, court procedures, and our legal system, while homing their speaking, listening, reading and reasoning skills.

The team consists of three attorneys and three witnesses both for the prosecution and the defense and competes against other high schools in the county.  County champions advance to regional competitions, with six teams meeting in Albany for the Statewide finals each May.
