The 2021-22 Competition
Each of the local circuits and counties will make a determination regarding a virtual or in-person competition by November 12. Mock Trial team registrations are due by October 28th. The case will be released on October 31, 2021 to all teams that are paid and registered.
Our tentative schedule of competitions is as follows:
January 10 - preliminary/local competitions may begin
February 24 - circuit champions are declared
Week of March 7 - Quarterfinal/Regional Competitions
Week of March 14 - Semi-Finals/ State Championship
March 23 - Awards Luncheon
May 5-7 - National Mock Trial Competition (Only if our state champion wishes to advance; this is not mandatory, and only the state champion is eligible.
Did you know? Last year, during the COVID pandemic, Maryland was the only state in the nation to coordinate a virtual competition as large as ours. One hundred and twenty schools registered last year (compared to an average year when 150 teams compete). That's 120 teams, 21 counties (inc Baltimore City) and 1500+ students who were provided the opportunity to compete at least six times on one of three virtual platforms over nine weeks/ eighteen nights of competition!
Volunteers Make it Possible
The success of MY Mock Trial program is heavily dependent upon the 470+ volunteer attorneys and judges who coach teams, and score competitions at local, regional, semi-final and final levels. Each year, these attorneys, masters and judges across the state volunteer thousands of hours for this program.
Teachers, courthouse personnel, and many others across the state are also part of this incredible network of volunteers who help this program run efficiently throughout the season.
Volunteer opportunities are flexible and convenient. Mock Trial runs throughout the state, in virtually every county. If your time is limited, and you would enjoy judging a competition, it's an easy way to give 2-3 hours of your time without further obligations. If you have more time, on a consistent basis, then you may enjoy coaching one of our teams. We will work with you to ensure we find the perfect volunteer opportunity!
