A RETURN TO IN-PERSON COMPETITIONS in 2022
The North Carolina Mock Trial Program (NCMTP) Board is very pleased to announce that the
NCMTP will plan to hold the 2021-2022 NCAJ High School Mock Trial regional and state final
competitions in-person in 2022. We are planning for the regional mock trial competitions (including a courtroom artist competition) to be held in courthouses throughout the state on Saturday, February 5, 2022; Campbell University School of Law is generously hosting the 2022 State Finals competition at their Raleigh campus on March 18-19, 2022.
Team registration for the season opened on September 1; see https://ncmocktrial.org/compete/important-forms/ for all details. Access the competition case and rules at https://ncmocktrial.org/compete/case-materials/
Registered teams will have the opportunity to be paired with another team for an online scrimmage at date of their choosing this winter. https://ncmocktrial.org/team-scrimmages/
Don’t have an attorney advisor? Registered teams can contact firstname.lastname@example.org to be paired with a local attorney in their community who can help prepare students for competition.
30 YEARS OF HIGH SCHOOL MOCK TRIAL IN NORTH CAROLINA
As outlined in our July 2021 newsletter we are beginning the 30th season of high school mock trial competition in North Carolina!
- Since 1992, high school students in this state have had the opportunity to grow and learn through
mock trial, developing their critical thinking, public speaking, and leadership skills for bright
futures ahead. We are celebrating all season, including by launching a Friends and Alumni Facebook group (facebook.com/groups/ncmocktrial), offering 30th anniversary t-shirts, and much more.
