The Providence Cup is the nation’s premier mock trial tournament in which high school teams compete for prestigious awards.  The Cup prides itself on the fact that the Cup case is always based upon a fact pattern of historical significance (The Sinking of the Titanic, The Lindbergh Baby Kidnapping, The Murder of Emmett Till, The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln, the airline hijacking by DB Cooper) just to name a few.  The Cup uses a “tri-furcated” judging system (lawyers, law students, and lay people). Additionally, as coaches collectively state, the Cup is the perfect “kick-off” to the annual mock trial year.
