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. Students are selected through an application process 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. The fee is $250.00 for students who reside/attend school in New York State and $1,000.00 for students who reside/attend school out of state.  Click here for more details about MTSI.
