How did the mock trial community as a whole responding to the COVID-19 crisis?
- For the 2020-2021 season, all mock trial invitationals as well as official AMTA tournaments in fall and winter quarters were held online. The national championship tournament, which was in April, was also held online.
Were there still mock trial tournaments?
- Yes! This past season, there were still just as many mock trial tournaments to attend, including invitational and AMTA-sanctioned tournaments. The only difference is that they were held online.
How did UCSB Mock Trial responding to the COVID-19 crisis?
- We committed to following the safety measures put in state both by the UCSB administration and the government. As a result, we decided to hold all mock trial related events that occurred during the 2020-2021 season entirely online. This included informational sessions, tryouts, practices, and Mocktopia V, our invitational tournament.
