Mock Trial Team


Mock Trial Competition is a program hosted by the Florida Law-Related Education Association (FLREA). Each year, FLREA provides a fictional court case, which is prepared for trial by student attorneys and witnesses. The case is presented as both the plaintiff and the defendant, and students participate in direct examinations with teammates as well as cross examination with the opposing team.


Awards include "Best Attorney" in 2014 and 2016 and the Stephen C. Shenkman Professionalism Award in 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2018. The Lakeland Christian School team won the Circuit 10 competition in 2014, 2015, and 2016 and represented the Circuit at the Florida State Mock Trial Championship in March 2016.


In 2018, the LCS team placed second in the State Championship of the Florida Mock Trial Competition. Junior Abby Branham was also awarded overall Top Attorney among all the schools represented, statewide.
