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.
