HOW DOES IT WORK?
We will provide a short case problem.
Competitors may submit recorded videos in any or all of the following categories: Opening Statements, Direct Examinations, Closing Arguments, and Pre-Trial Motions. Our judging panel will select the top 5 entries in each of the categories.
Selected Finalists will perform their entries live over Zoom in front of a selective panel of judges, who will select the medalists in each category.
See competition rules below for more details.
WHEN IS THE COMPETITION?
We will release the case on October 1st. You can submit your video any time between then and November 1. Judges will review the videos, and top competitors will be invited to the Medal Rounds – where you will perform live on Zoom during the evenings of November 14 (Pretrial Arguments and Opening Statements) and November 15 (Direct Examination and Closing Argument). Results will be announced live on November 16.
See timeline below for details.
