2012 National Mock Trial

National Trial Championship

Albuquerque, New Mexico

The Center for Civic Values and the State Bar of New Mexico co-sponsored the 2012 National High School Mock Trial Championship in Albuquerque on May 3-6, 2012. The Mock Trial was an impressive and successful event.

The goal to raise $100,000 to cover the cost of transportation, meals, printing and mailing, facility expenses, and awards for more than 1,000 high school juniors and seniors was met with your help.


“Not all students who participate in mock trial
become lawyers. What they do become is better and more active citizens.”

–The Hon. Gene E. Franchini

The 2012 National High School Mock Trial Championship was dedicated in loving memory to Justice Gene Franchini, the “Godfather” of mock trial in New Mexico. He was a dedicated CCV board member and a passionate champion of this program that has touched the lives of thousands of high school students since 1978.
