Established in September 2017, the members of the Mock Trial Team work with faculty to form a team and compete at mock trial tournaments through the American Mock Trial Association. Over 350 colleges and universities participate in these tournaments across the country. Students learn the roles of prosecutors, defense attorneys, plaintiffs, defendants, and witnesses and perform opening statements, closing statements, and direct/ cross examination of witnesses.
