Who Can Participate?

CJ Team Pic 2b - CopyMost anyone who is an undergraduate student at UAB can participate on UAB's team.  There are no requirements that you declare yourself pre-law or a justice science major.  Students who have participated on our team have studied many different subjects from biology to political science to philosophy to theater and everything in between.  Usually our team is pretty diverse and our members come from all walks of life, and almost all of our students say that they wouldn't trade the experience for anything even if they went on to medical school instead of law school.

That said, the American Mock Trial Association (AMTA) does have specific requiresments:
  1. You must be a degree-seeking undergraduate student in any field of study.
  2. You must not have already received a bachelor's degree or equivalent unless you are currently enrolled to receive an additional bachelor's degree or equivalent.
  3. You must not have ever enrolled in a graduate degree program.
