Mock Trial - 2013

Calendar of Events

The mock trials are open to the public and we encourage any teacher, student, parent, etc. who are interested in the law to attend and observe these teams in action!  Refer to the schedule below with dates/times to see trials near you! Please check in at the Lobby of the courthouse with the Coordinator/Staff and you will be given directions when you arrive.

As a rule of thumb, please note that the Regional Competition meets are held only between January 15 - February 15.  Regional winners are the only teams that will advance to the State Competition held in March during the current school year.
