Welcome to the State Bar of Nevada’s High School Mock Trial program! Each year, high school mock trial teams throughout the State compete at the regional and statewide level, with the top team advancing to the National High School Mock Trial Championship. The bar’s statewide program is administered by a volunteer Mock Trial Committee, with assistance from the Washoe County Bar Association.

This year will mark the state bar’s 20th anniversary of mock trial involvement. It is also a special year, marking the first time Nevada will host the National High School Mock Trial Championship in Reno!
