Asia Virtual Mock CLE Evidence Exclusionary Hearing Workshops and Event
The Asia Virtual Mock CLE Evidence Exclusionary Hearing Workshops and Event is a collaborative learning exercise with subject matter that focuses on relevant legal issues and social justice outcomes, not a competition with winners and losers. It is an abbreviated form of the Standard/Traditional Mock Trial in which participants had the opportunity to experience key aspects of the courtroom trial experience without all the formalities of a traditional mock trial.
