Contestants observe their schools' Mock Trials and create drawings of the courtroom scenes. Each Mock Trial Team may enter up to two courtroom artist. The winner of the county contest will be eligible to compete at the state Mock Trial Finals. For more information about the Courtroom Art Contest please contact your county coordinator.


Contest Rules Following rules apply to artists competing in LA County. Check with your County Coordinator for any changes made in your local county competition.

Requirements:

  • All contestants must be affiliated with a participating Mock Trial team and enrolled at the team’s school.
  • All contestants must pay an entry fee (fee may vary by county).
  • All entries MUST be done in color. If you will be using charcoal or pastel pencils, please use some type of spray sealer to reduce smudging.
  • The drawing must be on paper of the dimensions 11" X 14", with a horizontal format.  Any dry medium may be used. 
  • Your sketch must depict an actual courtroom scene that you observe during Round 2. You may not submit your R1 “practice” sketch for judging.
  • At the conclusion of R2 you must submit your work to the presider after the debriefing remarks (5-10 minutes after the verdict). Only drawings submitted to presiders will be entered in the contest.  Do not bring your drawing to Mock Trial staff yourself.

Instructions:

  • Introduce yourself to the scorers (they will be sitting in the jury box) and the presider (she/he will be sitting on the bench)
  • Sit in the jury box in a row below the scorers.  If a scorer or the presider asks you not to sit in the jury box, you may sit in the front row of spectator seating, away from witnesses.
  • Once you are seated, you may not have any contact with anyone from your school (parents, teachers, or fellow students).  You must create your drawing completely independently 
  • You are encouraged to use R1 as a practice round.  Official judging will begin with R2 submissions
  • At the conclusion of R2 you must submit your work to the presider after the debriefing remarks (5-10 minutes after the verdict).  The judge will deliver the drawing to Mock Trial staff, so be aware of the possibility of smudging, should you choose to use charcoal or pastel
  • Be sure to stick your name label onto the back of the drawing you submit. Name label and Name Tag will be provided to you by Mock Trial staff at check-in.
