Congratulations to all 2020-2021 Mock Trial Competition Team members! We are excited about a wonderful upcoming season!
Founded in the Spring of 2008, Auburn University's Mock Trial Competition Team is a continually growing organization that attracts a diverse group of students seeking to gain firsthand courtroom experience. While Auburn's team began as a small group of Political Science students that struggled to comprise as one team, the team now boasts enough members to fill two team rosters, which generally consist of eight to ten members per team. Auburn University's Department of Political Science, along with the Dean of the Department of Liberal Arts, hosts and sponsors the team, which travels across the nation to compete in mock trial tournaments under the American Mock Trial Association. As the team continues to grow, diversity among team members' college majors, races, and gender is rapidly increasing. Through participation in Auburn Mock Trial, team members improve their public speaking skills, advance their understanding of trial advocacy techniques, and polish their analytical skill sets.
