outstanding or above average performance. c. The appropriate County Coordinator will collect the Performance Rating Sheet for record- keeping purposes. Copies of score sheets are NOT available to individual teams; however, a team can get its total score through the County Coordinator. 3. LEVELS OF COMPETITION a. For purposes of this program, New York State has been divided into eight regions: Region 1 ......... West Region 2 ......... Central Region 3 ......... Northeast Region 4 ......... Lower Hudson Region 5 ......... New York City (NYC-A) Region 6 ......... New York City (NYC-B) Region 7 ......... Nassau County Region 8 ......... Suffolk County b. See Map and Chart of Counties in Regions (Appendix). 4. COUNTY TOURNAMENTS a. All rules of the New York State Mock Trial Tournament must be adhered to at tournaments at the county level. b. In these tournaments, there are two phases. In the first phase, each team will participate in at least two rounds before the elimination process begins, once as plaintiff/prosecution and once as defendant. After the second round, a certain number of the original teams will proceed to the second phase in a single elimination tournament. Prior to the competition, and with the knowledge of the competitors, the County Coordinator may determine a certain number of teams that will proceed to the Phase II single elimination tournament. While this number may be more or less than half the original number of teams, any team that has won both rounds based on points, but whose combined score does not place it within the established number of teams, MUST be allowed to compete in the Phase II single elimination tournament.

2018-2019 Mock Trial Case (Final Version Nov 5 2018) Includes all corrections made as of FEB 7, 2019 20 c. The teams that advance to Phase II do so based on a combination of wins and point differential, defined as the points earned by a team in its Phase I matches minus the points earned by its opponents in those same Phase I matches. All 2-0 teams automatically advance; teams with a 1-1 record advance based upon point differential, then upon total number of points in the event of a tie; if any spots remain open, teams with a record of 0-2 advance, based upon point differential, then upon total number of points in the event of a tie. d. If the number of teams going into the single elimination phase is odd, the team with the most wins and highest combined score will receive a bye. If any region starts the year with an odd number of teams, one team from that region may receive a bye, coin toss, etc. e. Phase II of the contest is a single round elimination tournament; winners advance to the next round. f. At times, a forfeit may become a factor in determining aggregate point totals and which teams should advance to the single elimination tournament. Each county should review its procedures for dealing with forfeits, in light of the recommended procedures below. Please note that due to the variety of formats in use in different counties, it is strongly urged that each county develop a system which takes its own structure into account and which participants understand prior to the start of the local tournament. That procedure should be forwarded to the New York State

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
