This past weekend, Tufts Mock Trial traveled to Des Moines, Iowa, where they competed in the American Mock Trial Association (AMTA) National Championship Tournament.
Of the 670 teams that entered the competition, only 48 made it to the championship. The Tufts team swept the competition, winning third place!
This year was only the second time that the team has qualified for nationals.
A recent article in The Tufts Daily quoted senior Jonathan Lautin, Tufts Mock Trial’s Co-President:
“Before last year we never even thought about being in the National Championship Tournament.”
Congratulations to the entire team!
