The University of Tennessee, Knoxville Mock Trial team is a student-run organization competing in mock trial competitions across the nation. The organization is entirely student-run and student-coached, with the member-elected Executive Board leading the organization. The team generally consists of 25-40 UT students after fall tryouts have been completed.
In the fall, we attend private invitational tournaments, and in the spring, we compete in the American Mock Trial Association Championship Series. This consists of a Regional Tournament, an Opening Round Championship Series (ORCS) Tournament, and a National Championship Tournament, consecutively.
The purpose of this organization is to educate undergraduate students at the University of Tennessee in the areas of public law, speaking skills, critical thinking, and argument ability, and to have fun doing it.
