2017 CCCE Mock Trial camp!! July 26 – 29, 2017 in Chapel Hill. The CCCE will host one four-day mock trial camp, which will offer instruction for Beginning and Advanced students and teacher-coaches. Participants will receive instruction from legal professionals on all aspects of mock trial, from opening statements to closing arguments. Law students and collegiate “mockers” will mentor students in hands-on sessions as students prepare to argue a criminal mock trial case at the end of the camp. Held on the UNC campus, our Chapel Hill camp will have options for both day and overnight campers. For more information, go to CCCE Camp.
