Letter from the Director

Dear Mock Trial Participants:


Welcome to the thirty-fourth annual Rhode Island Mock Trial Tournament.

Our best wishes to the teams, new and old, participating this year. Those who are returning to the tournament have learned firsthand  why mock trial programs are thriving around the country and around the world.


Students from most states and territories in the United States and from many foreign countries spend part of each school year planning mock trial strategy, memorizing witness statements, and preparing to defend or prosecute cases. While role-playing the parts of witnesses and attorneys,they are acquiring or polishing important life skills, but most importantly, they are having fun.


To make this unique educational opportunity possible, each year hundreds of Rhode Islanders donate an impressive amount of time and talent. We salute our past, present, and future volunteers. Their willingness to participate is vital to the success and survival of this program. We hope that everyone will have an exciting, rewarding, and memorable an experience in the 2018-2019 tournament!
