National Pretrial Competition

The National Pretrial Competition captures what attorneys do every day in offices and courtrooms across the nation.  Competing teams will:

  1. Receive a problem drafted to focus on pretrial issues;
  2. Write two memoranda of law that will be scored;
  3. Make an evidentiary presentation through examination of two witnesses on each side; and
  4. Make a legal argument based on the evidence presented, arguments made, and precedent cited in the memoranda of law.

Stetson Law will host the Fifteenth Annual National Pretrial Competition October 6-9, 2022, in person.
