A one-day workshop at three locations: North Carolina Central University School of Law of Durham; Fayetteville State University and NC A&T State University of Greensboro via tele-presence training that primarily targets North Carolina elementary and middle school teachers to learn more about courtroom procedure and how to conduct mock trials and moot courts in a classroom setting. Teachers heard from and interacted with lawyers and other legal professionals. MTT is designed to align with the North Carolina Standard Course of Study at each education level. Teachers played a role in an actual mini-mock trial and were provided with resource materials.
