2022 National Mock Trial Championship in Michigan

Information on the 2022 National High School Championship

The National Mock Trial Championship is coming to Michigan in 2022!

This is the year! Join us May 4-7, 2022 for the National High School Mock Trial Championship! We hope this the first of many opportunities to highlight the finest in Michigan’s civic and law-related education communities.  MCCE believes in the talent and volunteerism in Michigan. The goals are to provide an amazing event for all the participants and utilize this event as a chance to build up Michigan’s law-related education communities.

Over 1,200 people are expected to attend the newly reconfigured hybrid Championship. While students will be online, volunteers are encouraged to join us in Kalamazoo to partake in the receptions. Kalamazoo will remain as the host city for the May 4-7, 2022 event. MCCE is as committed as ever to celebrate and elevate the legal communities in this city as well as throughout Michigan. It is an honor to host this prestigious competition and we will continue to invest to creatively engage all students, teachers, volunteers, sponsors,and partners throughout this weeklong celebration and competition. 

MCCE is grateful to the commitment still displayed by the Kalamazoo Host Committee, Discover Kalamazoo, the State Bar of Michigan, the Litigation Section of the State Bar of Michigan, Warner, Norcross + Judd, the Kalamazoo County Bar Association, the Young Lawyers Section of the State Bar of Michigan, Miller Johnson, the ABOTA Foundation, and so many more. MCCE extends its gratitude to the NHSMTC who, together with the mock trial coordinators across the country, continue to work diligently to create opportunities for more students to participate in mock trial – in one format or another.  

It is still our hope and expectation to convene the judges’ reception and other volunteer events in Kalamazoo to safely honor the volunteerism, spirit, and commitment deep within Kalamazoo, the state of Michigan, and the country for the law-related education community and these emerging legal scholars. If you are interested in sponsoring these important events, please contact MCCE (info@miciviced.org)!
