Constance Baker Motley Mock Trial Competition Overview

Each team will consist of four advocates per team. Teams will offer opening statements, direct and cross-examinations of witnesses, and closing arguments. Witnesses are not scored in this competition. Regional and national competitions will simulate a civil trial proceeding. 

Advocates are evaluated on their overall courtroom presence, command of the Federal Rules of Evidence and Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, teamwork, and timeliness and accuracy of objections. All scoring will be calculated in accordance with the official CBMMTC rubric. Each trial lasts approximately 2.5 hours. 

The top three placing teams from each of the six regional conventions will be invited to compete at the National Convention taking place from March 16th to March 20th in Memphis, Tennessee.

Registration ends on December 1, 2021!
