2024 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.

Similar to last year, this year’s competition will be conducted via a hybrid format. The hybrid format allows for schools across the State of Hawai’i to compete and build a community with minimal interruptions to the participant’s in-person schoolwork. Regardless of the format, we know that you and your students will put on amazing performances, gain disciplined organization skills, and improve their confidence in their oratory talents. Our targeted start date for the ACTUAL competition is in early-February of 2024.

The champions are eligible to compete in the National High School Mock Trial Championships which will be held in Wilmington, Delaware on May 2-5, 2024.

If your school is interested in participating, please download the application packet and additional information in the “RESOURCES” section and submit your application by Monday, November 27, 2023.

If you need assistance or clarification regarding the rules, procedures, or any other matters, please contact us at [email protected].

For more information about last year’s mock trial, please see the 2023 Mock Trial webpage.
