In this video extra from the Independent Lens documentary The Trials of Muhammad Ali, 30 high schools take on Ali’s legal struggle in a 2010 mock trial competition held in his home state of Kentucky. Students utilized trial materials taken directly from Clay v. United States (1971), and the short film interweaves footage from the real-life trials with the intense student competition.
