Pre-Law Program: Mock Trial Individual Honors

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 students have earned individual honors, including 18 Outstanding Attorney awards and 13 Outstanding Witness awards.
