High School Programs

For high school students, Furman offers Top Mock, a one-week summer program for the best 12 high school mockers in the US.  Furman also offers mock trial scholarships for entering first-year and transfer students. 


Top Mock is a one-week summer program for the best 12 high school mockers in the US.  It is designed to polish the skills of the nation’s best mockers by teaching them advanced skills in evidence, preparation of direct and cross examinations, and acting skills for witnesses. The program will focus on both the substantive aspects of preparing a case as well as presentation skills.  During the week, students will complete two trials.  Trials will be conducted in local courthouses.

Students will be selected through a rigorous application process, and they will come to Furman University’s campus in Greenville, South Carolina from Sunday, July 6 through Saturday, July 12, 2014.  The cost of the camp is $1200.

The coaches of Furman University’s award-winning mock trial program (including our professional acting coach) will serve as professors for this intensive week of training and will be ably assisted by the students on the mock trial team.  Presentations during the week will be made by some of Furman’s most decorated mock trial participants who are now practicing attorneys.
