National Criminal Procedure Tournament

The 28th Annual National Criminal Procedure Tournament will be held this fall at the University of San Diego (dates forthcoming). Each team will be guaranteed four total arguments to take place over one night and one morning.

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. Click here for more information.
