Attention Future Litigators!!
The Mock Trial Executive Board has been working hard and is happy to announce that we will be hosting the WMU-Cooley Mock Trial Oral Advocacy Competition on March 12 - 13, 2016. This competition is open to any Lansing student that has not completed Evidence or Trial Skills; you can be currently enrolled in evidence. The competition will allow students to work on their oral advocacy and will NOT include the rules of evidence, but there will be non-evidentiary objections. You will be provided with a handbook and can attend a workshop to learn everything you need to know to compete successfully. Students will compete in team of two, or you can sign up as a single and be assigned a partner. For those students who would like to participate but not compete, there are volunteer positions available for witnesses, bailiffs, and jurors.
Upon request, teams will be assigned a coach who will assist and work with you to prepare for the competition. Practice rounds are optional, and are available for you and your coach to meet for live practice and feedback to refine your litigation skills. Please keep in mind that in order to participate you must be able to attend a workshop.
Applications are due no later than Week 6, Friday, February 12, 2016, at 5:00 p.m. You can submit your application to Room CC 305, the Mock Trial Office, or by e-mail to email@example.com
