During February registration month, students from the Introduction to Courtroom Debate class visited english classes to show students a video and explain the opportunities within Introduction Courtroom Debate Class and Mock Trial.

The 2018-2019 Oak Hills High School Mock Trial team earned 2nd place in the high desert, making them an award winning class.

The Mock Trial team is looking for new members for the 2019-2020 school year and students who are interested can start by enrolling in the Introduction Courtroom Debate Class. Students who have completed a year of Introduction Courtroom Debate can sign up for Advanced Courtroom Debate. This class is for students who aspire to be an attorney, enjoy arguing, or simply want to experience what goes on in the courtroom.

“We make sure to look at everything ahead of time so when we have the debates [at the] court[room] we are prepared,” explains Rebekah Chavez, junior and Mock Trial student at Oak Hills High School.

Participants are able to gain knowledge of what the courtroom is really like. Students are able to practice various skills in the courtroom, go through attorney coaching and receive constructive criticism from real attorneys. The class prepares students to prove valid points in whatever the debate is, and it helps them back themselves up.

“It boosts your self-confidence,” says Mock Trial junior Vanessa Suarez. “You practice [speaking] in front of people…it is fun going into a courtroom.” 

Though Mock Trial itself is not longer a club, the Introduction to Courtroom Debate class focuses on students who are willing to commit and participate in Mock Trial events. This A-G elective class offers a lot of challenging courses to really make the students wonder about whether they would really like to take up law as a definite major. If you are leaning more towards law in your future career, taking  Introduction Courtroom Debate Class is recommended to write down on your college applications. 

For more information on the Introduction to Courtroom Debate class, visit english teacher Jeni Boulanger in room D-20.
