Carleton Mock Trial Club


This club is really different than others in the same category. It is much more casual, and much less competitive and stressful than others. It combines legal knowledge and understanding of our legal processes with fun and excitement. Mock trial involves acting, on the spot thinking as well as a little bit of preparation, research, and collaboration. While other academic competition style clubs are much more centered around individual growth, mock trial is very much a team sport. In this club, you will be a part of a team and you will be working with like minded students, rather than competing against them. That doesn’t mean you won’t get the opportunity to compete though, we will sign up for a few tournaments with different schools!
