Mock Trial

An innovative, hands-on experience in the law for high school students of all ages and abilities.

The state finals competition takes place in Albuquerque each year. Finals consists of three rounds among all teams. Every team presents each side (prosecution/plaintiff or defense) of the case once - in rounds 1 and 2 - and one or the other in round 3.

The results are calculated and trophies are presented to the top three teams at an Awards Ceremony following Round 3. Individual awards are also given to any student who is selected by a judging panel as an Outstanding Witness or Attorney. In addition, the two students who receive the greatest number of points as an attorney or a witness from the judges during the three rounds will be named the Zamzok Most Outstanding Attorney and Witness; these $500 cash awards are funded annually by Albuquerque attorney Larry Zamzok.

A summary of the final results will be posted on the CCV website and copies of the official ballots are sent to each team in the week following the event.
