Mock Hearing allows Teen Court panelists to be prepared for upcoming virtual cases

On October 5, 2020 experienced teen court panelists conducted a mock virtual hearing for newer panelists. It was an opportunity for them to practice asking restorative justice questions for the first time as many joined the panel in April 2020 and to learn from experienced panelists. The mock hearing was also an opportunity to practice conducting hearings using Zoom including virtual questioning, deliberations and sanctions.


Teen Court panelists from all six school districts in Buffalo and Pepin Counties participated in a mock hearing to sharpen their questioning skills and practice conducting virtual hearings.
