Very well done. Student subjects are attractive, clearly engaged in the staged courtroom competitions. Unusual extracurricular school activity lifts it above typical teen fare. It is refreshing to see high school students so absorbed in the legal process. One juror said, "What a great concept. Wish they had this when I was in school."
RAISE THE BAR is a video documentary that explores the world of the exceptional young adults that compete at the National High School Mock Trial Championships.
