Mock Trial

Open to all law students, the Mock Trial Competition provides students an opportunity to implement classroom theory through simulating the trial process. Teams of four develop a litigation strategy based on a given problem and then present their case before a panel of lawyers and judges. The competition allows law students to develop and hone courtroom skills such as: witness preparation, direct examination, and cross examination.
