Mock Trial Summer Institute
The Mock Trial Summer Institute (MTSI) was established in 2005 to strengthen students’ and teams’ understanding of Mock Trial and its applications. Forty-eight students are selected from New York State schools to attend this week–long, intensive camp-like
experience. Under the direction of counselors, who are Mock Trial teacher-coaches, and experienced attorneys, the students study all aspects of Mock Trial and apply their studies to the presentation of a Mock Trial case on the final day of MTSI.
