||The National Trial Advocacy Team promotes excellence in trial advocacy through training, education, and participation in mock trial competitions. The National Team competes in mock trial competitions throughout the year. While preparing for competition, team members have the opportunity to develop trial advocacy techniques in one-on-one settings with faculty and litigators. Competitors are selected through an intra-school competition. Class/Practice usually takes place on one weeknight and one weekend day. However, the days and times may vary depending on the schedules of coaches and students. Students who are chosen for the team must register for and will receive 2 credits for their successful participation. Evidence is recommended, but not required for students wishing to tryout for the team.
