The American Mock Trial Invitational invites qualifying high school students to compete against top mock trial finalists from all parts of our country May 2 - 4, 2007.
WHAT IS AMTI?
The American Mock Trial Invitational (AMTI) was established in May of 2006 by the New Jersey State Bar Foundation and the North Carolina Academy of Trial Lawyers in order to permit high school state mock trial champions with weekend religious obligations to compete in a national forum. Last year the invitational was held at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on weekdays. In 2007 AMTI will take place at the New Jersey Law Center on the beautiful Douglass/Cook campus at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ, Wednesday, May 2, through Friday, May 4.
Why should state champions compete in the 2007AMTI? The invitational is the only nationwide mock trial competition that permits more than one team to represent each state - as many as three of a state's top four high school championship teams are eligible to participate. A team consists of 7 to 10 students.
All contestants will receive certificates, suitable for documentation for college applications, acknowledging their participation.
In addition, AMTI does not interfere with Saturday or Sunday religious observance or proms, AP exams or Mother's Day. Contestants will have the opportunity to try a challenging case, enjoy a private dinner at and educational tour of the inspiring Ellis Island Immigration Museum in New York Harbor, and stay at a fine hotel in New Brunswick, a vibrant college town with many cultural and culinary venues less than an hour from New York City.
HOW MUCH IS THE REGISTRATION FEE?
The cost to register each team is $200. This includes complimentary:
- continental breakfasts and hot buffet luncheons for teams, coaches and guests on May 3 and 4;
- orientation dinner for teams and coaches on May 2;
