2013-2014 Mock Trial Tournament Standings
      
Rhode Island Legal/Educational Partnership (the Partnership) is located in Providence, Rhode Island.  The Partnership has produced the Rhode Island Mock Trial Tournament since 1984, and is an independent 501 (c) (3), not-for-profit agency chartered in 1983 as an alliance of legal and educational professionals committed to promoting a public understanding of the law and the legal process through law-related and civic education.  Law-related education (LRE) is a practical strategy for teaching the relationship of law to daily living.  It promotes civic responsibility, involving students in high school, junior high school and middle school across the state in the learning process by using interactive strategies and community resources.

The Partnership in collaboration with the Rhode Island Judiciary and Rhode Island College offers four week-long court based institutes, Summer Institutes on the Courts.  Since the program began in 1987, hundreds of educators have earned graduate credits, professional development or continuing education credits while getting a unique behind-the-scenes look at the judicial system.  Each institute is a mix of court observations, related discussions and panels, plus one or more fieldtrips.

Our goal is to educate the student participants about the judicial system and provide them the opportunity to attain new perspectives, and gain self-confidence in ways that classroom learning alone cannot provide while working as a team.  These goals could not be accomplished without the large number of Rhode Island teachers, administrators, lawyers, judges and other volunteers who provide an impressive amount of time and valuable services to the Mock Trial Tournament.  If it were not for the assistance of these volunteers, the Tournament would not be the success it has been and is today.  We are sure that the students will have an experience that they will treasure for years' to come.

We hope to hear from you soon!
