The program is hosting 300 students from 13 states and the Republic of Korea, including 5 schools from Georgia!
Bremen H.S., Clarke Central H.S., Henry Grady, H.S., Jonesboro H.S. and North Gwinnett H.S. are representing the home state.
The trials are held at Fulton County Superior Court. Attorneys will either serve as a presiding judge or scoring juror, and will provide students with both written and oral feedback. Complimentary food will be served!
I am excited to invite law students at Emory to judge at Empire Atlanta—an elite high school mock trial competition that brings together 300 high school students from 28 high schools and 12 states. The tournament is being hosted by Empire Mock Trial, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that has impacted 3,500 high school students over the past eight years. Our students are truly incredible, and we hope that you join us this fall so you can see so yourself!"
Honorable John Carbo
Chief Judge, State Court of Clayton County, GA
"The Empire Mock Trial competition provides an excellent learning opportunity for all participants. Not only have our students from Jonesboro High School expanded their legal knowledge, but they have also benefitted from the unique cultural experience of interacting with students from other states and countries."
