Will the Rules of Evidence be substantially different this year?
Will there be any significant changes in how trials are conducted?
What information can you provide about hotels?
We will reserve blocks of rooms for each for the two championship-round teams on Saturday night, and those rooms will be covered by the tournament hosts. Participating schools are responsible for any other hotel costs associated with attending the tournament.
Judges planning to stay overnight during the tournament are responsible for their own reservations and costs. The tournament hosts cannot cover any such costs due to the lack of state funding for the tournament.
Will the tournament hosts provide funding for the state champions to attend the National High School Mock Trial Competition in Hartford, CT?
No. Due to the elimination of state funding for the tournament, the tournament hosts unfortunately cannot fund the winners' travel to the NHSMTC. All such costs are the responsibility of the winning team's school.
