One of the primary goals of the Springfield Metropolitan Bar Foundation is to increase public interest and understanding to the American legal system. To that end, the SMBF became the tournament administrator for the Ozarks' Regional Mock Trial Competition in 2006. The intent of this project is to increase public awareness of our system of justice and legal proceedings by engaging the interest of high school students through participation in competitive mock trials. The team that places first in the Ozarks’ region advances to the state competition.
