2021 STATE MOCK TRIAL COMPETITION RESULTS

 

 

On March 20, 2021, Girls Preparatory School of Chattanooga won the 2021 Tennessee State High School Mock Trial Competition, prevailing over Montgomery Bell Academy of Nashville in the state’s first virtual mock trial competition. It was also the first state competition win for the school. The team will now represent Tennessee in the virtual National Mock Trial Competition in May. The championship round was presided over by Tennessee Supreme Court Justice Roger A. Page and scored by a team of TBA and TBA Young Lawyers Division leaders.
