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.
