National Criminal Procedure Tournament

The 27th Annual National Criminal Procedure Tournament will be held on November 5th through November 8th, 2015 at the Hall of Justice in Downtown San Diego. Each team will be guaranteed four total arguments to take place over two nights, with all arguments taking place at the San Diego Hall of Justice.

As always, the tournament will provide advocates with the opportunity to argue challenging and timely issues related to criminal procedure before experienced and knowledgeable members of the California Bench and Bar. Previous final round judges include Justices of the Supreme Court of California and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
