Every fall, thousands of teenagers from across the country get ready to go to court, not because they have to, but because they want to. From September to April, these young people immerse themselves in the inner-workings of the justice system — after school, in the evenings, and on weekends.

All across the country, before real judges, high school students try the cases they have been preparing. From opening statements to direct and cross examination of witnesses and closing arguments, they present each part of a legal case. Each team has its own "attorneys" and "witnesses" and must be ready to present either side of the case before "juries" that score their performance. Trial by trial, the teams compete for the championship of their jurisdiction, vying for the opportunity to take on all the other winners at the national championship each May. This May, they will travel to Madison for a chance to claim the national championship.
