- Meet other teens from across the country who share your passion!
With Encounters at Brandeis passionate, motivated high school students immerse themselves in hands-on learning experiences while living on a college campus.
Follow in the footsteps of Justice Louis Brandeis at Brandeis University’s Mock Trial Boot Camp. This boot camp is an intensive week for law buffs, whether you are a serious participant in high school mock trials competitions, or just love the excitement of legal dramas and popular cases!
The Mock Trial Boot Camp gives students who are interested in law, public policy, and leadership an opportunity to gain knowledge and skills in legal analysis. Through a series of playful mini-trials, serious strategy sessions, and practical workshops, you will take your legal skills and understanding to a new level. Here’s your chance to tackle the issues with world-class attorneys, judges and law professors. Our final trial will be held in the Federal Courthouse in Boston.
Attorney Jason G. Happel, renowned mock trial coach and judge, will moderate the Boot Camp, welcoming an all-star cast from the Boston legal community. Jason’s practice focuses on family-oriented legal issues. He has taught a wide range of topics, including classical philosophy, comparative law and literature, and Shakespeare.
Encounters at Brandeis give teens an invaluable opportunity to meet young people from different backgrounds and cultures, and to learn with- and from- one another.
No prior experience necessary.
