About Us

"Now and then, an extraordinary case may turn up, but constitutional law, like other mortal contrivances, has to take some chances, and in the great majority of instances, no doubt, justice will be done. " Blinn v. Nelson, 222 U.S. 1, 7 (1911).

Hello Future Litigators:
       Welcome to the Mock Trial Board website! My name is Kristin Giommi and I am your Chair of the Lansing Mock Trial Executive Board. This organization has fostered some of the best litigators in the nation, which is why we are considered to be one of the most prestigious organizations both on Cooley's campus and nationwide.
      The benefits of having Mock Trial experience are endless and potential employers actively seek those that have acquired practical experience through this organization. If you would like to gain more practical trial experience and set yourself apart from other employment candidates, please contact any member of our executive board or visit us in room 305. We look forward to sharing a great experience with you.

As the Executive Board, we are committed to the furtherance of our mission, which is to encourage and assist Thomas M. Cooley Law School students in developing the leadership, civility, and effective 
advocacy skills necessary to confidently proceed to trial.
