Mock Trial at UC Davis is a collegiate mock trial program that competes against teams from across the nation. We are a completely student-run organization, assisted by volunteer attorney- and law student-coaches. Our program ranks in the top ten teams in California, and we have qualified for the American Mock Trial Association National Tournament four times in recent years.
Mock Trial is a competitive activity that provides students with the opportunity to learn about advocacy skills, legal processes, courtroom procedure and techniques. Each year, students receive a hypothetical case and construct both the plaintiff's or prosecution's and the defendant's side of the case. Students polish these cases for competitions against other colleges and universities' teams in a simulation of a real-life trial. Mock Trial is a great opportunity for individuals to demonstrate and refine public speaking, analytical, and acting skills.
Your donation will contribute to the continued success of our mock trial program, which has climbed significantly in the national ranks over the last few years, representing UC Davis in competitions around the nation. Funds are used for travel to tournaments, printing case materials and demonstratives, and hosting our own tournament that draws up to three hundred students from colleges across the country. By utilizing your funds, we will continue our mission of helping students hone invaluable skills and experiences in communication, teamwork, and professionalism.
