National Criminal Procedure Tournament

Update 2:

  1. Event Schedule: Please reference the 2022 National Criminal Procedure Tournament Schedule for scheduling. Besides that, travel and logistic planning is likely best left to the teams and their individual comfort levels, particularly for those that are crossing multiple time zones.
  2. NCP Competition Rule #6: concerns the allowance of ‘guest judges’ for oral argument practice. After advocates have submitted their briefs, coaches are allowed to assist with the preparation of oral arguments. In support of these efforts, the participation of ‘guest judges’ for practices is acceptable. The guest judges should limit their feedback to oral argument techniques, presentation methods, and general impressions.
