At the University of Maryland, mock trial is not only a competitive team, but also a three-credit class open to undergraduate students in any major. Coached by law professors and practicing attorneys, many of whom are former UMD mockers, students learn to communicate with confidence, problem-solve, argue persuasively and effectively, and become integral team players.
There are four to five different teams within UMD Mock Trial, allowing the program to conduct in-house trials twice weekly to prepare for tournaments against other schools. We are always looking for new competitors. Join us as we work towards our sixth national championship during the 2018-2019 season!
In order to register for Mock Trial, interested students must contact the instructor, Zac Mundy, directly. He can be reached at wzmundy [at] umd.edu.
More information can be found on the Mock Trial blog.
