Middle School Mock Trial Event Dec. 11

Middle School Mock Trial Event Dec. 11

Eight mock trial regional winners will advance to the state finals at the Durham County Courthouse.

The Law-Related Education Advisory Committee of the North Carolina Bar Association Foundation will present the sixth annual Justice Iredell Middle School Mock Trial Tournament on Friday, Dec. 11, at courthouses throughout the state.

Eight regional champions will be determined to compete in the state finals on Saturday, Jan. 9, at the Durham County Courthouse.

A record number of schools have registered for the competition with many schools entering two teams. Competing N.C. schools are listed below along with their courthouse assignments.

Courthouses in Bertie, Buncombe, Chatham, Columbus, Durham, Harnett, Lenoir, Mecklenburg, Rockingham and Wilkes counties will host regional competition. Regional champions are determined by top scores within the region, not head-to-head results from the courthouses, in order to minimize travel.

Questions should be directed to LRE@ncbar.org for any inquiries. The following N.C. schools have entered teams comprised of students in grades six through eight.
