The Mock Trial Board is a student-run honorary society dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in trial advocacy. The Board conducts internal trial competitions, which are held under realistic conditions at area courthouses and judged by practicing litigators. Based upon performance in these competitions, top student litigators are selected for membership. Members of the Mock Trial Board also represent the Law School in external competitions against other schools across the nation. The Law School has achieved national recognition based on the success of Mock Trial Board members in these competitions.
