The Mock Trial Team, hosted by the Departments of Criminal Justice and Political Science, recently won 2nd place in the regional competition held in Jackson, Mississippi.

This is a huge accomplishment, so please join us in congratulating them!

UA student Collin Metcalf received the “Best Attorney” award for his performance at regionals.

“[Mock Trial] is an incredible and exhilarating learning experience that can put you 10 steps ahead if you’re headed to law school,” Metcalf explained. “[At regionals] we had to win the vast majority of the ‘ballots’ we got in our rounds, which we did, going 7-1 throughout the competition to tie for second and qualify for the Opening Round Championships in Memphis.”
