The University of Pittsburgh will host its fifth annual High School Mock Trial Tournament on January 10-11, 2009. This tournament, featuring over 40 teams from across the state of Pennsylvania, affords students the opportunity to practice their case twice on each side prior to the actual competitions later in the school year.
The tournament will be structured in a two-day, two-round format: each team will try the case once as the plaintiff, once as the defense both days. Rounds will be judged by current and former Pitt Mock Trial members. All teams must stay for both rounds of the competition. For more information, please view the attached documents: an informational letter about the tournament, schedule, a registration form for you to complete, and roster form to return to us. Any further questions may be directed to the Tournament Director, Phil LaRue at firstname.lastname@example.org.
