For Parents

For the Parents of Mock Trial Team Members

We will compete on February 18 at 1:30 at the Sandy Justice Court at 210 W Sego Lily Dr, Sandy, UT 84070. 
and February 27 at 9:30 also at the Sandy Justice Court.

Tuesday, February 18
Students will leave on the bus for Sandy at about noon.
We will be back at the school by 4:30.  We are hoping to allow time to have lunch or a snack together to celebrate after the trial.  

You are invited to join us at the competition.

Please be in your seats in the courtroom before 1:30. 
Please turn cell phones completely off.
Please do not bring small children.  We will be in a working courthouse and need to be very careful about not disturbing either our mock trial or any other court proceedings that day.  

You may take pictures before and after the trial -- before the judges come in or after the judges have left or have left the bench -- NOT during the trial.
To videotape the trial we will need permission from the other team.  If you would be willing to videotape for us, please contact Ms. Dorsey. 

Important!: During the trial, including any breaks, team members may communicate only with other team members who have roles in that day's trial.  They may not communicate with parents, teachers, other adults, or other students.

Students participating in the trial will ride the bus to the courthouse.  If you would like to take your student with you after the trial, please let Ms. Dorsey know.

Thank you for supporting your student in this activity!  Please encourage and help him or her to be prepared for our trial days and to dress "professionally."
