Mock Trial

Mock trial is a simulated courtroom experience where students take on the role of attorneys and witnesses in a fictional court case. Students learn more about trial proceedings, and work on your public speaking, critical thinking, and creativity skills. The UMass Lowell Mock Trial team competes each year against many of the nation's top universities and colleges.
