A new wrinkle in mock trial

The MSBA’s high school mock trial program is expanding its program to include a courtroom artist competition. High school students will be able to compete even if their school does not have a mock trial team. Participants will create a drawing depicting a moment in the trial they attend and submit it for judging.

A limited number of participants will advance to participate in the state tournament, where they will be assigned to one of the trials to create a drawing that will be evaluated by a panel. All entries will be displayed at the awards banquet and participants will be introduced. The artist selected as having created the best drawing will be eligible to accompany the state champion team to the National High School Mock Trial Championship in the spring of 2024.
