The National Civil Trial Competition is open to all ABA-accredited law schools that have demonstrated excellence in mock trial competitions and/or demonstrated excellence in the training of law students in litigation skills. The purpose of the tournament is to provide student litigants an opportunity to develop and display the skills of a successful civil litigator. Students will be required to perform:

  • Opening statements
  • Direct and cross examination of expert and lay witnesses
  • Closing arguments
  • Arguments of objections based on the Federal Rules of Evidence

Each of the 16 invited law schools may bring one team of four advocates/witnesses, and each team will be guaranteed to participate in at least three full trials.

Trials will be judged by distinguished members of the Southern California bar, including partners and associates from numerous Los Angeles civil litigation firms.
