Love public speaking? Acting? Studying the law? Thinking of creative ways to deal with complicated situations? Participating in a competition with college students from all over the United States? Traveling around the country with a super weird and super fun group of people? Mock trial could be a great fit for you.

Mock trial is a remarkable public-speaking competition in that it fosters the unique abilities of each and every team member. Competitors aren’t forced to fit a certain mold to succeed in it; instead, they are able to bring their own style of performance and critical thinking to the courtroom and still perform vital roles for their teams.

Northwestern Mock Trial is an elite mock trial program in the United States. It is currently ranked a top-25 program nationally by the American Mock Trial Association, and its history of success spans several decades, many trips to the national championship round of AMTA, and a long line of alumni who have gone on to succeed in various fields, legal and elsewhere.
