We further our vision by providing education and resources to encourage public participation in the law. Siince 1978 CCV has been the administrator and host of various law-related education programs, including Gene Franchini High School Mock Trial program. Mock Trial is an educational initiative for high schools statewide that teaches young people about the law and the legal system. There are volunteer opportunities available for lawyers and non-lawyers through the mock trial program, and original case materials developed by CCV are available for use by others.
