What is Mock Trial?

Mock trial is a public speaking competition that introduces you to the world of trial lawyers. Students learn court procedure, hone their acting skills, and perfect their persuasive abilities in a year-long collegiate competition as they travel nationwide to represent the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.


UTC Mock Trial is the premier public speaking organization on campus. We encourage students of all majors and interests to join us.

We host interest meetings and auditions in late August and early September, and compete in tournaments from October to April each school year.

Yes, we will be active during the 2020-21 school year, competing in virtual tournaments! Even if you're online-only due to COVID, you can still compete with us.
