Thank you to all the volunteers for the 2023 Arkansas High School Mock Trial Competition

On Saturday, March 4, 2023, Conway High School defeated Springdale Har-Ber High School in the Championship Round of the Arkansas High School Mock Trial Competition. Arkansas Supreme Court Chief Justice Dan Kemp presided over the final round. Pictured above from left to right: Scoring judges Edward Oglesby, Joe Kolb, Chief Justice Dan Kemp, Margaret Dobson, Danyelle Walker, Jamie Huffman Jones and Margaret Dobson. 


Conway High will represent Arkansas at the 2023 National High School Mock Trial Championship, to be held in Little Rock May 18-20. Springdale Har-Ber High may also be asked to attend if an additional team is needed.


We appreciate the members of the Mock Trial Committee as well as all of the volunteers who served as judges at regional and state competition. Volunteers are still needed to judge the National Championship. For more information, visit littlerock2023.nhsmtc.org and click on the Volunteer link.

The Mock Trial program is successful because of our volunteers.  Scoring judges, presiding judges, and bailiffs all serve a vital role in the tournament. A mock trial round lasts approximately 2.5 hours with a 30-minute orientation before the round. If you are willing to donate 3 hours of your time, please sign up here Get involved.
