Mock Trial at Indiana University is the premier legal activity on campus, providing a framework for members to gain a better understanding of the practice of law. While engaging in competitive trial simulations with other undergraduate teams, students develop critical thinking and public speaking skills, as well as a knowledge of legal practices and procedures. Each year teams across the nation receive a civil or criminal case from the American Mock Trial Association (AMTA). We spend the rest of the year traveling across the country trying it.
Our organization was founded six years ago by a small group of law and undergraduate students here in Bloomington. As we grow in numbers, we are also growing in strength. Last year, all four of our program's teams placed at Regional Championship Competitions and one team placed at the National Championship Tournament this past year. Follow our progress and check back often for updates on your favorite undergraduate Mock Trial organization.
