Each year, Hicksville High School students participate in Mock Trial Tournament. Students learn effective strategies for mock trial attorneys and witnesses. Students are taught to identify elements of good openings, closings, directs, and cross-examinations and how to respond to objections, and prepare and introduce exhibits. The annual Statewide High School Trial Tournament provides students with hands-on opportunities to further their understanding of our law, court procedures and our legal system. It is a program of the New York Bar Association. For more information, vist www.lycny.org. Our students train with their advisor Ms. Amanda Mayr and a consulting attorney. Mock trial meets every Tuesday in room 307 at the High School at 2:30pm.
