Mock Trial

Mock is an act or imitation trial that  is similar to a moot court.

The difference is that mock trials simulate lower-court trials, while moot court simulates appellate court hearings.

In mock trial, student attorneys preparing for a real trial might use a mock trial consisting of volunteers as role players to test theories or experiment with each other. In many areas of the US, students participate in rehearsed trials to learn about the legal system in a competitive manner.
