The Missouri high school Mock Trial competition is the largest and most established program coordinated by Bar Association Metro St. Louis (BAMSL). As the only statewide lawyer related education program, it serves more than 600 students from more than 65 schools throughout Missouri. During the summer, volunteer attorneys develop and write the mock trial case or problem for the regional and state competitions. After the case is completed, a manual is developed to help the students.
