Registration is only $200 per team. Teams must consist of four individuals, comprised of two attorneys and two witnesses. All teams will compete in three preliminary rounds. The top two teams will face off in a finals round before a real Arizona trial court judge. This year’s problem is a criminal case involving drug smuggling with drones. To make interesting, all teams will be given the initial problem packet and will also later receive additional material for a pre-trial oral argument relating to a pre-trial legal issue.

Registration is limited. To RSVP your team or to request more information, email
