High School Students to Participate in Carroll County Mock Trial Competition

Carroll County’s high school mock trial competitions will begin on Tuesday, January 10, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. at the Circuit Court of Carroll County. The competitions take place each Tuesday evening through February 14, 2023, to determine the county mock trial team champion. The top two teams in the county will move on to the Circuit 5 competition which will include the top two teams from Howard County and Anne Arundel County. The Circuit 5 competition is to be held at Circuit Court of Anne Arundel County in Annapolis, Maryland.

Teams from Carroll Christian, Century High School, Francis Scott Key High School, Liberty High School, South Carroll High School, Westminster High School, and Winters Mill High School will compete this season. The teams will be arguing a criminal case and each week of competition will present their case from either the position of the prosecution or the defense. 

The mock trial program in Carroll County started in 2016 when the Office of the State’s Attorney for Carroll County partnered with Carroll County Public Schools, Bar Association of Carroll County, and Maryland Youth and the Law (MYLAW) to bring this opportunity to high school students.
