2006 Competition Information



Loyola Law School is pleased to announce the Fifth Annual National Civil Trial Competition on November 9-11, 2006, 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.


Sixteen law schools have been 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.



The competition problem will be distributed to participating schools in early September, 2006.
