What is Mock Trial?

  • A team activity where students from different schools compete against each other as attorneys and witnesses in an imaginary case.

  • You learn public speaking skills, professionalism, communication, and how to work on a team.

  • An opportunity to dress up and perform in front of actual judges.

  • NOT just for people interested in studying law in college!

  • NOT a debate club!

  • Run by the Minnesota State Bar Association! 

  • Practices will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:10-4:30 in the D200-209 pod. Attendance is required!!
