Congratulations SGUSD on your new Mock Trial Courtroom!

It is with great pride that we congratulate the SGUSD on the dedication of their new “George Carney Mock Trial Courtroom” on the Jefferson Middle School campus.

The award winning middle school and high school programs in our district have proven to be an effective learning tool for students. It helps them understand the law, practice critical thinking, and gain greater confidence with public speaking by assuming the roles of attorneys and witnesses in a fictional criminal or civil trial.

Participants experience first-hand the difficulties that judges, lawyers and juries face in determining which facts are relevant and what legal arguments are effective.

SEF is proud to provide vital funding serving both the JMS and GHS Mock Trial programs as well as providing financial support towards the development of the new courtroom. We wish students for many years to come much success in and out of the classroom!
