2019 Regional Competition Most Effective Attorney & Most Effective Witness-Optional Opportunity

The Nebraska State Bar Foundation’s Mock Trial Program encourages coaches to teach high school students about civility and good sportsmanship. Included in this year’s Case Materials is a "Most Effective Attorney Certificate" and a "Most Effective Witness Certificate.” At the conclusion of each trial, student team members will have the opportunity to select two opposing team members and present a certificate to an attorney and a witness.  Each team will need to print out and provide their own certificates to present at each trial.
