St Olaf College Mock Trial is pleased to invite you to the 12th annual Ole Open tournament from November 5 to November 6, 2022. This tournament’s format is a 2– 2, with two rounds on Saturday (11/5), and two rounds on Sunday  (11/6) followed by an afternoon awards ceremony.

The registration fee is $200 for the first team and $175 for each subsequent team from every school. The final day to register your school for Ole Open will be Monday, October 24, 2022. However, we will be capping the number of teams we take, so please respond at your earliest convenience. We request that schools make every effort to bring at least one judge per team. If you can bring additional judges, we will take $50 off your registration fee. If your school is unable to bring judges, we will still consider your program, but a small fee may be assessed.

We continue to observe CDC, state, and local guidelines relating to COVID -19 practice. We are planning on hosting Ole Open fully in person, however, please stay alert for any guideline updates this coming fall.

It is our greatest honor to once again be able to host Ole Open, and we would love for your program to share in this experience. Should you have any questions regarding the tournament or would like to accept our invitation, please visit our website at to find out more about the tournament and registration and contact forms.  Additionally, please feel more than free to contact us with any questions at  We’re looking forward to a great mock season, and hope to see you in Northfield come November!
