The New Jersey State Bar Foundation (NJSBF) anticipates conducting in-person mock trial competitions this coming school year, beginning with the 40th anniversary of our High School Mock Trial Competition.
County competitions will take place in January, with regional, semi-final and final contests in February and March. There is no charge to enter.
NJSBF’s Law Fair Competition for grades 3 to 6 and Law Adventure for grades 7 and 8 will proceed as usual with submission of original mock trial cases written by teachers and students according to rules that NJSBF provides. It is anticipated that the May programs, at which winners present their cases before judges and attorneys and juries of their peers, will be in-person with a hybrid virtual option if necessary.
