Mock Trial

POLI 119 Special Topics: Advanced Mock Trial

The goal of the mock trial class is to provide an opportunity for you to enhance communication and critical-thinking skills, and gain knowledge about the judicial system, through preparing for a mock trial based on the annual case problem submitted by the American Mock Trial Association (“AMTA”). Students who qualify may be selected as mock trial team members to compete in the annual AMTA tournament in the spring semester (location varies). Course offered in the fall semester only. Open to all majors.

If you have any questions or are interested in participating in the Advanced Mock Trial course, please contact Dr. Claire Curtis, Interim Department Chair.
