Tufts Mock Trial is a 100% student-run collegiate mock trial organization that competes as a part of the American Mock Trial Association. Founded in 2004, Tufts Mock Trial has grown to become one of the top-ranking collegiate mock trial teams in the nation. Throughout the year, Tufts Mock Trial travels to compete at tournaments all over the country. Our young program has earned a spot at the National Championship Tournament for five straight years, placing 3rd in the nation in 2011, and followed up with a 5th-place finish in 2015. Tufts frequently competes — and wins — against programs that have existed for twice as long as we have.
Tufts Mock Trial is composed of four teams of six to ten students, all of whom regularly compete for the program. The members of Tufts Mock Trial have won countless personal awards in the program’s short history, with many recognized as outstanding attorneys and witnesses at the highest levels of competition. Each member of Tufts Mock Trial is practicing, competing, and traveling throughout the year, resulting in a level of program-wide engagement that is unique among Tufts’ student groups. Our teams bring home more trophies and titles than any other organization on campus.
