About Us


The University of Arizona Mock Trial team, competing nationally since 2002, is an institution focused on improving speaking and critical thinking skills through a simulated court environment. As a program familiar with national-caliber competition, we pride ourselves on a refined understanding of the Rules of Evidence and our ability to argue a clear, coherent case. Students of all majors and interests are encouraged to participate. No prior experience is necessary! Just bring a positive attitude and a desire to learn. You will enjoy every minute of Mock Trial!


What is Mock Trial?

Mock Trial is a combination of speech, debate, and acting. Students take on the roles of witnesses and attorneys to simulate a trial. Each year the American Mock Trial Association prepares a legal case with witness statements, case law, statutes, and other exhibits. In the first few months of the academic year, teams throughout the United States analyze the case and create arguments for both the plaintiff/prosecution and the defense. Every team has three attorneys and three witnesses and each student is assigned a role: witness, attorney, or both. Teams then compete throughout the remainder of the year by arguing their cases in courtroom settings.

Competitions send our teams all across the country in places such as New York, Seattle, Las Vegas, Chicago, Washington D.C., Orlando, and Los Angeles. So, if you are looking to travel the country and have fun in the process, Mock Trial is the club for you!
