After participants learn about and prepare for the case, rehearsals with the entire team are crucial to perform competitively and improve weaknesses by getting coach/attorney feedback. Weekly practice attendance and homework completion are mandatory.
The team currently plans to hold six mock trial rehearsals during November through January. Each student must attend at least five of these rehearsals. Coach Bellamy may dismiss any student from the team for missing rehearsals. The final selection of team members for the competition may depend upon each student’s experience, degree of preparation, and the demonstrated ability to perform.
Team members who do not compete at the regional competition will be able to attend and observe as alternates. The mock trial team may need the substitutes to compete at the district competition. Coach Bellamy will give priority for participation in an invitational tournament held in February or March at Georgia State University Law School for members who are unable to compete at regional or district championship, but who prepared and practiced. Other tournament competition opportunities may be made available upon request by team members.
