The New Jersey State Bar Foundation (NJSBF) will transition its in-person mock trial programs for grades 3 – 12 to a Zoom platform.
Instructions for the 2020-21 High School Mock Trial Competition will be posted on our website, njsbf.org, by early October.
The NJSBF Law Fair Competition for grades 3 – 6 and Law Adventure Competition 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. The May programs, at which winners present their cases before judges and attorneys, will transition to Zoom if in-person events are not possible next spring.
Free webinars to help teachers prepare for the High School Mock Trial Competition and for Law Fair/Law Adventure will be conducted on Oct. 22 and 15 respectively.
