Mock Trial is designed to prepare students to compete in the American Mock Trial Association’s regional and national mock trial tournaments.
Students learn to construct all components of a trial, from opening statements, to direct and cross examinations of witnesses, to closing arguments. They become familiar with many of the rules of evidence and procedure governing trial courts across the nation. The program is an excellent introduction to the trial process as it operates in the United States.
If you are thinking about law school, you want to experience what it is like to engage in trial advocacy, or you just enjoy the thrill of intellectual competition, Mock Trial is for you! For more information, contact the Director of Prelaw Advisement.
