An original (and very popular) DVD is available from the Young Lawyers Division of the State Bar of Georgia. It can serve as an excellent resource for any school, coach, or attorney-coach in developing a program and for use in team training. The teaching film is approximately 60 minutes long and will take teams step-by-step through a mock trial. The DVD is also suitable for use in a law-related class. It features interviews with students, teacher, attorney coaches and supporters of the mock trial competition in Georgia, and trial footage.
