Mock Trial student competition held in Dineen Hall.

Mock Trial

The Syracuse University Mock Trial Team provides an excellent introduction to the dynamics of trial advocacy. Students learn how to argue a case, examine and cross examine witnesses, be successful in the rigorous courtroom environment, and forge a coherent team that capitalizes on individual talents. Students also learn the rules of evidence and the logic of legal reasoning. Students gain excellent presentation and critical thinking skills, and can earn credit for their work in Mock Trial.

The Program is on hiatus in 2018-2019, with plans to return in 2019-2020. For updates on plans for next year, return to this page starting in April 2019.
