2022 San Diego County High School Mock Trial Competition

The 2022 San Diego County High School Mock Trial Competition promises to be the largest to date and we need your help!

The 16th Annual San Diego County High School Mock Trial Competition is scheduled for February 26, 2022 from 8:30 a.m. to approximately 11:00 a.m. and March 1,3, and 7 from 5:00 p.m. to approximately 7:30 p.m.  We are planning for an in-person competition to be held at the San Diego Superior Court's Central Division located in downtown San Diego.

Please note: Due to the surging COVID-19 illness and exposure rates, the dates for the competition have been changed in the hope that the additional time will afford an opportunity to have the competition remain as an in-person/in-courthouse event.  The new dates are reflected above.  Because of the changing dates of the competition, we regretfully have deleted all previous sign-ups and ask that if you previously signed-up, to please sign-up again. 

Attorney scorers are provided guidelines and scoring criteria for evaluating performance and numerically scoring the individual students and the teams.  The criteria include the quality of the students’ presentations, their grasp of the law and court procedures, and their understanding of the case itself. 

The time commitment is approximately two-and-a-half hours per trial in addition to the time necessary to review the competition materials prior to the competition.  Attorneys may volunteer to score as many trials as they like. 

In order to avoid any actual conflict of interest, or the appearance of one, attorneys who have a child or grandchild participating in this year’s competition may not serve as an attorney scorer.  Also, if an  attorney volunteers as a judge, scorer, or advisor during practices or scrimmages for any San Diego County high school team or teams during the competition year, they are ineligible to serve as an attorney scorer.

Please review the list of schools and attorney coaches attached below.  You will be asked to identify any coaches or schools with whom you may be affiliated so that we may identify any conflict of interest.  In that circumstance you may still be a scorer, but we will use the information to ensure you are not assigned to score a team with whom you have an affiliation.  

In advance of the competition, please review the case brief attached below.  Additional competition materials will be sent to you as they become available.  For the scorers' convenience, we will be offering an orientation via Zoom on four different dates.  Those dates will be announced via email and on the website in the future.  If you have any questions or need additional information, you can reach us at [email protected]
