BIMA at Brandeis

Dates for 2015 to be announced!

  • Learn real trial skills and techniques.
  • Wrestle with controversial issues.
  • Meet other teens from across the country who share your passion.

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.

Participants in our Mock Trial Program have credited their Brandeis experience with helping them get key roles in their mock trial teams back at home- including captain!

No prior experience necessary.
