We are proud to report that Crescent High School will InshaAllah be the first Islamic school to participate in the nationwide, educational Mock Trial program sponsored by the New York Bar Association. In this program, students have the opportunity to gain firsthand knowledge of civil and criminal law and trial procedure. Our students will have the chance to compete as trial lawyers with other schools within the state and country.
Moreover, not only do students learn the life- long skill of becoming a confident public speaker, but as mock trial participants, they have the opportunity to expand their academic resume and earn scholarships. If they continue to compete in college, they will become part of the American Mock Trial Community developing important career connections.
Since we are starting the program next year, we’ve arranged for our ninth graders to watch the final two teams compete.
