2004 Competition Information

Loyola Law School is pleased to announce the Third Annual National Civil Trial Competition on November 18-20, 2004, in Los Angeles.

The National Civil Trial Competition, sponsored by the law firm of Greene, Broillet & Wheeler, is an invitational tournament open to all ABA accredited law schools who have demonstrated excellence in mock trial competitions and/or demonstrated excellence in the training of law students in litigation skills. The purpose of the tournament is to provide student litigants an opportunity to develop and display the skills of a successful civil litigator. Students will be required to perform opening statements, direct- and cross-examination of expert and lay witnesses, and closing arguments -- as well as argue objections based on the Federal Rules of Evidence.

Fourteen law schools will be invited to compete. Each school may bring one team of four advocates/witnesses and each team will be guaranteed to participate in at least three full trials. Trials will be judged by distinguished members of the Southern California Bar including partners and associates from numerous Los Angeles civil litigation firms.

Interested schools should complete and return the application on or before June 15, 2004. Schools will be invited based on the applications submitted. The competition problem will be distributed to participating schools in early September, 2004.
