Definition - What does Trial Practice mean?
Trial practice is a law school course that allows law school students to practice their skills in a trial setting. It is basically a series of mock trials where law students can practice public speaking, making arguments, jury selection, tone and other things related to litigation. It is an alternative to other classes in law school, which simply teach law.
