Mock Trial and We the People Registration and Materials!

16 October, 2018

Please be on the lookout for registration for both We the People and Mock Trial on November 1.

New! We are excited to announce the following change to Mock Trial.

 Beginning November 1, the case materials will be available to all to download. There will no longer be a need to pay and register in advance of receiving the materials. Instead, simply provide your contact information, and you can download the case materials for free and begin your 2018-2019 Mock Trial journey. Our hope is that this practice ensures greater accessibility for materials to the entire community.

Do register for your region of choice asap! Registration will also be open November 1 and continue through January 11.
