The winning teams were announced during a live virtual awards ceremony this evening following the final rounds of competition. For the second consecutive year, Mock Trial was held virtually due to the pandemic.

    About the 2022 Ventura County Mock Trial

    Courtroom drama comes to life in the Mock Trial competition as students take on the roles of participants in a criminal trial, including attorneys, witnesses, bailiffs and journalists. The students normally present their cases in real courtrooms before actual judges with local attorneys on hand to score the competition. This year, the students, judges and scoring attorneys all met virtually via Zoom due to the pandemic. This year’s fictitious case was “People v. Cobey: Homicide in the Desert.”

    The 22 high schools that participated this year are Adolfo Camarillo High School, Agoura High School, Calabasas High School, Channel Islands High School, Fillmore High School, Grace Brethren Jr./Sr. High School, La Reina High School, Newbury Park High School, Nordhoff High School, Oak Park High School, Oaks Christian School, Rio Mesa High School, Royal High School, Saint Augustine Academy, Saint Bonaventure High School, Santa Paula High School, Santa Susana High School, Simi Valley High School, Thousand Oaks High School, Trinity Pacific Christian School, Ventura High School and Westlake High School.
