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.

The state bar’s high school mock trial program is supported by the Nevada Bar Foundation and an endowment made on behalf of attorney Charles Deaner. Chuck Deaner was an ardent supporter of law related education and Nevada high school mock trial. Through his living trust, the Nevada Bar Foundation and the State Bar of Nevada can ensure continued support of law related education and the development of Nevada’s future young lawyers. The state championship round is named in his honor.
