Virtual Mock Trial

Virtual Mock Trial

Oyez, oyez, oyez! Court is now in session—VIRTUALLY! MD Theatre Guide calls it, “An hour of delicious fun that wedded law and theatre seamlessly.” Don’t miss your chance to watch an encore presentation of the Virtual Mock Trial to hear an appellate argument before a panel of judges, based on a legal issue arising out of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Plus, you will still be able to chat with other viewers and act as jury to vote live in the trial.

Heralded as “The funniest, most entertaining event in Washington,” by Roll Call magazine, the Mock Trial series features prominent law professionals as they explore the connection between classical theatre and modern-day law. Past participants include justices and judges from the United States Supreme Court, the Supreme Court of Canada, the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, and the United States Court of Appeals to name a few.

In an effort to keep our participants and audiences healthy, the Mock Trial will be held online. Our judges and advocates will be connected remotely via video while remaining safely in their chambers, homes, and offices.
