Some Upshur County middle school students stepped out of the classroom and into the court room on Monday to learn how the judicial system works.

About 30 students in the gifted program at Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School were at the county courthouse to hold a mock trial.
Each student had a role including being an attorney, a juror, a witness, and even the defendant.
This is the first time they've held a mock trial with a real scenario.
Teachers said they hope the kids learn about all the careers associated with the legal system through the activity.

Several Buckhannon Police Officers also helped with the mock trial Monday morning.
