2021 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.

Due to the pandemic, we have decided to host the competition virtually. One of our primary objectives during this planning process was making sure that we are able to conduct the competition in a safe 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 held virtually in Evansville, Indiana on May 13-15, 2021.

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 11, 2020.

For more information about last year’s mock trial, please see the 2020 Mock Trial webpage and 2020 Photo Gallery.
