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!
UAB Digital Media Features Mock Trial TeamUAB Digital Media visited our mock trial team several times over the course of the last year. They've completed an excellent video where they interview team captain and individual award-winning student attorney Zachary Carpenter. The video gives potential students a glipse into the mock trial world, how Zack believes the experience will help him with his future plans, and the kind of comradery that team members often experience.
The Mock Trial Team wishes to thank those at UAB Digital Media for their hard work shooting and putting this video together. The team is excited for the upcoming year. As for the coach who was up until 3AM with Mr. Carpenter putting together demonstratives, he would like to assure all potential members our practices usually do not run that late.
