Why Mock Trial: I enjoy public speaking. The analytical and communication skills, coupled with having to think on your feet, are invaluable skills gained from mock trial, all of which are applicable to any field of law one wishes to practice.

Undergraduate Degree: Criminal justice with a minor in Psychology
Why Mock Trial: I joined mock trial to develop my skills as a litigator, to improve my public speaking, and to help others develop their litigation skills. I believe you shouldn't complete law school without competing in at least one mock trial -- even if you don't want to become a litigator. It's better to learn now then when you are out in the real world dealing with real clients.
