The Tufts Mock Trial team is heading to the national championship in St. Paul, Minnesota this month to battle it out for the national title.
Members of the mock trial team each play the role of attorney or witness and together act out their version of a criminal or civil case. During the year, the group travels around the US taking on some of the top schools in the country, preparing for the Nationals. Each fall, they look for new members who are interested in law, are good at thinking on their feet, and want to challenge themselves. They’ve created this video to show new and interested students what mock trial is all about.
Tufts Mock Trial (TMT) took first place at the 16th Annual Yale Mock Trial Invitational this December. With a 9-3 victory, the team improved upon their impressive 3rd place slot from the previous year. The team also expects a bid at Nationals, a competition in which they placed 3rd last year.
TMT is a student-run organization composed of 6-8 members each semester that competes based on America’s Federal Rules of Evidence. For more information on the team’s practices or how to become involved, browse their official website. You can also follow TMT in the media through their active Twitter Feed and Facebook page.
