The 2012 LONE STAR CLASSIC® will be held on October 11th, 12th, and 13th in San Antonio, Texas. The competition is open to all law schools that have been accredited by the American Bar Association. The competition committee will select 16 teams - of four students each - to compete. Each school selected to compete may enter no more than one team.
As with last year's competition, the problem this year will be a criminal case. The case will take place in the hypothetical state of Lone Star and will utilize the Federal Rules of Evidence.

The deadline for filing the entry form is Friday, May 11, 2011. Our committee will extend invitations to the sixteen schools the week of May 14th. The problem will be sent to the competing schools in August.
The entry fee will be $525.00. Entry fees are due not later than August 1, 2012.
This year the three preliminary rounds will take place on Thursday, October 11th and Friday, October 12th. Teams will break to semi-final rounds on Saturday morning, October 13th, with the final round on the afternoon of the 13th, at the law school s state-of-the art courtroom. We will announce the various winners of the preliminary rounds at a dinner buffet and reception on Friday evening. Awards for the preliminary rounds will include best advocate for the preliminary rounds, best opening, and best summation.
We look forward to another great competition this year. If you have any questions, please contact Professor Schlueter at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 210-431-2212.
