Are you interested in the law? Do you like to play devil’s advocate? Join us for a mock trial workshop led by Vilaska Nguyen, a felony trial lawyer at the San Francisco Public Defender’s Office. In this workshop, you will be introduced to basic constitutional rights before being split into two groups and participating in a mock trial. Each team will draft their argument, either for the prosecution or the defense. Together you will discuss, write, and edit your argument before presenting your argument to real trial judges, who will give you supportive feedback.
