2023 High School Mock Trial Program

Volunteer attorneys coach high school mock trial teams as they prepare to take a case from start to finish. The program culminates in mock trial competitions between schools and a State Championship at the Hawaii Supreme Court.

The 2023 competition will be hosted in a hybrid format, to allow for student and volunteer participation statewide. One of our primary objectives during this planning process was making sure that we are able to conduct the competition in a safe and inclusive environment for the students, coaches, parents, volunteers, and our dedicated Judges.

The champions are eligible to compete in the National High School Mock Trial Championships which will be held in Little Rock, Arkansas on May 18 to 20, 2023.

If your school is interested in participating, please download the application packet and additional information in the “RESOURCES” section and submit your application by December 2, 2022.

For more information about last year’s mock trial, please see the 2022 Mock Trial webpage.
