Dear fellow mock trial enthusiasts,

We are pleased to announce that we will yet again be hosting our annual high school seminar program!

The 2017 Angela R. Mathew High School Seminar Program will provide high school students with the opportunity to learn from some of the best collegiate mock trial competitors in the nation. We offer a dynamic program consisting of interactive lectures by our most experienced team members, individual sessions in which students receive one-on-one guidance on how to improve their skills, demonstration rounds, and scrimmages. The Harvard Mock Trial Association is one of the most competitive college mock trial programs in the country and, in 2015, we won the American Mock Trial National Championship Tournament. This seminar program is the forum for us to share the tools and techniques that have led to this success.

Now in our 12th year, the Harvard Mock Trial High School Seminar Program has trained both novice and advanced teams, who have gone on to win competitions at the state and national levels.

It is our philosophy that success in mock trial comes from a balance of knowing how to prepare and how to deviate from the plan by thinking on your feet and being creative. In our two-pronged program, students spend part of their time in a series of interactive lectures, taught by our team’s experienced competitors, including National Champion All-American Attorneys and Witnesses, who have won individual awards at the Collegiate National Championship Tournament. They also take part in what we call “breakout sessions,” in which teams work individually with a member of Harvard Mock Trial to develop their cases, write questions and statements, and prepare for the scrimmage at the end of the seminar. You get the tools to success along with the personal guidance to implement it for yourself.

Yet the seminar is more than just an educational program. Students meet competitors from all over the country, whether it is during lectures or at the annual ice cream social. And since you are at Harvard, we also offer tours of the world famous ivy-covered campus.

Put simply, we cannot wait for you to take part in the dynamic experience offered by the Angela R. Mathew Harvard Mock Trial High School Seminar Program!

The 2017 Angela R. Mathew High School Seminar Program will be occurring on October 14-15th and November 11-12th. Please visit the links below for further details.
