Fall 2014 Information SessionUAB's award winning Mock Trial Team will be holding an Information Session on Wednesday 27, 2014, at 7:30PM in the Burr Forman Mock Trial Courtroom (UBOB 226). The team will briefly introduce you to mock trial, show you a clip from a national championship round, and try their best to answer your questions. We welcome anyone and everyone who may be interested in the team. We would estimate that the information session will last about a half an hour, but it could go longer depending on how many questions are asked. Oh yeah... and there will be free pizza.
For over a decade, UAB's mock trial program has consistently trained students to become excellent advocates. But while participation in the UAB mock trial program does better prepare these students for what will be expected of them in a legal career, students who participate on the mock trial team are given the opportunity to develop abilities that will serve them well in anycareer.
By analyzing, preparing, and presenting a legal case, mock trial team members improve their public speaking and problem solving skills, which are valuable in any profession. And by participating in this process, students considering a legal career gain valuable insight into what actually practicing law entails.
You'll find links on this website to help you begin learning more about mock trial, joining UAB's team, and UAB's pre-law program. But if you have any questions, you may always reach one of us from the contacts page. We encourage you to take advantage of this tremendous opportunity, and we hope to hear from you soon!
