The annual Pre-Law Mock Trial Competition offers an opportunity to practice your budding trial skills in a courtroom setting. Students develop skills such as creative problem solving, effective collaboration, forming a persuasive argument, public speaking and quick thinking.
Competitors receive invaluable feedback from judges comprised of practicing/barred P.A.D. alumni, P.A.D. law chapter members currently enrolled in law school, and/or P.A.D. Law & Pre-Law Mock Trial veterans.
The competition provides the ability to compete on a national level, not just within your local community. This is not just great practice and experience, but also a great resume highlight to show law school admissions, future internship managers, and future employers. It's a great step toward Mock Trial practice in law school.
