2023 California Mock Trial State Finals

Judges, Attorneys, and Law Students   


Los Angeles will be hosting the 2023 California Mock Trial Finals at the Stanley Mosk Courthouse, for the first time! We need your help on March 17 and 18. Legal volunteers are an integral part of the Mock Trial program. 

The State Finals involve over 800 high school students from across the state that will represent their county in court, playing the roles of attorneys, witnesses, clerks, and bailiffs. We need over 300 legal volunteers to make the State Finals a success. Each scoring panel includes a presiding judge to preside over a trial and 3-4 attorneys to score the students’ performances.



All trials last 2 to 2 ½ hours and will take place at the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in downtown Los Angeles. We still need volunteers for the rounds below.

Round 2 - Saturday, March 18 at 8:30 am - 15 volunteers needed
Round 4 - Saturday, March 18 at 4:30 pm - 20 volunteers needed
