The New Jersey State Bar Foundation sponsors this competition annually in cooperation with New Jersey’s 21 County Bar Associations and the New Jersey State Bar Association. As a public education service, the Foundation provides a workbook with complete competition information for contestants as well as a mock trial instructional video. Teams are matched with attorneys who volunteer to work with teachers and students in preparation of their cases. Students compete initially at the county level. County champions continue at the regional level, and regional winners vie for the semifinals and ultimately the statewide championship finals. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, trials are being conducted online this year.
