Students at Southwest High School in Macon get a lesson in the legal system.  About 20 students participated in a two-hour long mock trial.

Students from Southwest High School's Law and Community Response class battled it out in court over a murder case.

Students acted the part of attorney, bailiff, and witnesses. School administers joined in as jurors. 11th grader Teshana Robinson says it's a great way to prep for the future.

"After high school, I would like to go off to college and major in some form of law whether it's the police department or any law form," says Robinson.

Mock trial competitions will start in February at the Bibb County Courthouse. Instead of a murder trial like this one, students will argue a civil case.
