    The 9th Annual NSBA Invitational High School Mock Trial Tournament will take place Thursday, February 3, 2022. The tournament will again be virtual this year utilizing the same PROcess software from last year.

    • Coaches Meeting will take place Thursday, January 20, 2022
    • Evaluator/ Judge Orientation will be held on Thursday, January 27, 2022 

    Unfortunately, we have recently lost our school district partnership. Thus, NSBA is now solely responsible for the administration and funding of this competition. As a result of this transition, the registration fee has increased to $150 per team. Any school that is a Title I school or may otherwise be financially constrained from participation, should contact Kim Pressling at kimberly.pressling@gmail.com to discuss accommodations. We do not wish to turn any school away. 

    If you or your school may be interested in partnering with the NSBA on our invitational in the future, please let me know. Additionally, we welcome any and all volunteers to act as Blue Shirts or bailiffs in each round. For student volunteers, we can offer public service hours. 

    Like last year, we are using the PROcess software for our invitational. The PROcess software will allow students to access their Zoom courtrooms, view written feedback from our evaluators and watch their trials after the competition. Zoom, login information, and Zoom links will be provided in January 2022.

    Each team will have the opportunity to present both sides of the case during two rounds of competition. Awards will be given to the top three teams with the highest scores from our judges. Top attorney and witness awards will also be presented. We are using the Illinois State Bar Association problem attached to this email. 

    Liability waivers are forthcoming and will be due with handwritten signatures (no electronic signatures will be accepted. Please scan and email these forms once they are signed by each student competing, one parent or guardian per student, and an agent of the school - coach, teacher, etc.) by the registration and payment deadline listed below. 

    The registration, liability waiver, and payment deadline is Monday, January 10, 2022. The preference is that schools pay at the time of registration. Once the registration form is completed, you will be directed to our PayPal link. We hope that we can accommodate every school that registers.

    The coaches meeting will take place on Thursday, January 20, 2022. More details including Zoom links will be available in January. 

    Anyone interested in volunteering for this event or who has questions should contact Kim Pressling at kimberly.pressling@gmail.comWe greatly appreciate your time and support.

    Thank You to Our Sponsors
