MOCK TRIAL COMPETITION

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.

  • Team Registration Form: TBA

Mock Trial team registration is due September 22nd

  • Cost: $175 per team 
  • Team Composition: 12 teams to compete comprised of 4 members per team, and up to 2 teams per chapter
