Mock Trial

Who we are

Mock Trial (formerly the Student Trial Advocacy Program) was founded in 1985 to train law students in trial courtroom advocacy.

What we do

The Mock Trial organization trains law students in trial courtroom advocacy. Mock Trial, supported by a formal course, Mock Trial Workshop, sponsors an intramural trial competition in both the fall and winter semesters. Pairs of students participate in a minimum of two trials per semester at the Frank Murphy Courthouse in Detroit. The program is open to upperclass students who have passed a tryout.
