2L Mock Trial Competition

The 2L Mock Trial Competition gives students their first opportunity to present a case in a courtroom. The emphasis of the competition is on putting facts together to make a persuasive case to a jury.  Nearly half the student body participate in this event each year with 2L's competing as trial attorneys, 3L's as presiding judges, and 1L's as jurors.  The competition is an introduction to the real-life trial practice that many of our students will experience as state's attorneys, public defenders, etc.
