High School Mock Trial

I'm pleased to announce that online registration for 2022-2023 High School Mock Trial is now open. All regional trials will be in person. We will follow the pre-COVID in-person format, where you will try each side of the case once, with all teams who win both of their trials qualifying for a state playoff tournament to be held in February.


As noted earlier, in-person trials will take place in the following state courthouses. We're pleased to be able to add a Danbury region as well; if you previously indicated your interest in another location but would like to change to Danbury, don't hesitate to let me know.

 Full Day Regions:

Friday, December 2, Stamford/Norwalk

Friday, December 9, Waterbury

Tuesday, December 13, Danbury

Friday, December 16, Hartford

Tuesday, December 20, New Britain


For full-day regions, teams are expected to report to their assigned courtroom by 9:30, with trials beginning at 10 AM. The second trial will begin after the lunch break at 2 PM. We've built in a relatively lengthy lunch break to ensure that all students and volunteers have time to eat and decompress a bit during the day.

 Half-Day Regions:

Tuesday, December 6 and Tuesday, December 13, Manchester (5:30 PM – 9:00 PM)

Wednesday, December 14 and Wednesday, December 21, Middletown (1:30 PM-5:00 PM)


For half-day regions, teams are required to attend both sessions. You will try one side of the case in the first week, and the second side of the case in the second week.


Our partner, the Connecticut Bar Association, has again graciously agreed to host our online registration this year. The system will accept payment of the fee of $350 per team by credit card or electronic transfer/check. The registration deadline is Friday, November 25, 2022. To register, please click this link:
