About Mock Trial

The Mock Trial Program is a rich curriculum that promotes the development of fundamental knowledge, sound judgment and critical thinking skills.

The Arkansas Bar Association Mock Trial Competition gives high school student teams from across the state the opportunity to act as lawyers and witnesses in simulated civil trials before actual judges and panels of juries.

Lawyers volunteer to assist students as team advisers, scorekeepers and regional coordinators. Each year, the winning team goes on to represent Arkansas in the national competition.

The 2018 Mock Trial Tournament is scheduled for March 2-3, 2018 in Little Rock.

Volunteer

The Mock Trial program is successful because of our volunteers.  Scoring judges, presiding judges, and bailiffs all serve a vital role in the tournament.  If you are willing to donate 3 hours of your time, please sign up! 

Volunteer to be a Scoring or Presiding Judge (must be an attorney or judge)

Volunteer to be a Bailiff (anyone is eligible)
