The primary goal of Emory’s Mock Trial Society is to foster and develop practical litigation skills through participation in workshops and competitions.
Each year, a select number of students from the first year class are invited to join Emory Law’s Mock Trial Society. Students are chosen based on their aptitude in advocacy and trial skills.
Throughout the remainder of their law school careers, these students compete in local, regional, and national mock trial competitions. They perform as advocates as well as play witness roles. In addition, each third year member acts as a mentor and coach to incoming society members.
