The 2022-23 school year has begun, and mock trial season is fast approaching!
Review and download the Season Calendar.
This year’s registration process will be online instead of a mailed packet. We are registering only primary teams now. Registration for an additional team (if any) from your school will take place in November.
Please have only one coach from the team complete the registration.
Please complete the form at THIS LINK: https://www.cognitoforms.com/HighSchoolMockTrial/_2023SeasonPrimaryTeamRegistration
Once it’s submitted, the coaches will receive a confirmation email that will contain a Registration Summary. If you are paying by check, mail the first page of this summary with the registration fee. All online forms must be submitted and registration fees received by the Mock Trial office by the end of the day Oct. 3 to avoid the late fee.
If your school is paying by credit card, use THIS LINK: https://secure.affinipay.com/pages/gabar/hsmtteam1
If paying by check, please mail it (with the first page of your printed registration confirmation) to: Rich Harris, Mock Trial Office, State Bar of Georgia, 104 Marietta St. NW, Suite 100, Atlanta 30303.
Remember, the registration fee is $125 if received on or before Oct. 3, then on Oct. 4 goes up to $225 (late registration penalty, to encourage you to finish early). The absolute deadline to register is November 1.
If you are a new coach, whether for an established team or a brand-new team, you have a few opportunities to learn more about the nuts and bolts of the competition.
