Pre-Law Program: Mock Trial
All students, regardless of major, are welcome to participate in Mock Trial. Mock Trial is a competition among teams of students taking on the roles of attorneys and witnesses in a hypothetical case. Members of our mock trial teams participate in annual regional and national competitions, run by the American Mock Trial Association, gaining valuable experience and insights into the practice of law.
Traditionally, Manchester has done quite well in mock trial tournaments. Since 1992, Manchester mock trial team achievements have included 5 national tournament bids and 2 Spirit of AMTA awards. Manchester students have also earned individual honors, including 18 Outstanding Attorney awards and 13 Outstanding Witness awards.
Students interested in Mock Trial should contact one of the coaches: Dr. Leonard Williams or Prof. Brad Pyrah.
