Interested in Joining for the 2016 Season?
Interested in joining the Mock Trial team? The officers and coaches will hold an interest meeting on August 30th in the Reading Room in the Guerry Center at 8:30 PM. Auditions for returning members will be that following Thursday, September 1st at 7 PM. Auditions for new members will be held on Tuesday, September 6th at 8 PM and Thursday, September 8th at 8 PM. (Location to be provided in a confirmation email sent to you). The auditions are designed to test thinking, public speaking and acting skills.
Mock trial is a big time commitment; our coaches have created a team with real ambition and drive for the upcoming season. Although it is a non-academic activity, it's also a competition and is treated as such. We want to win, and want you to win as well.
That being said, we think it's time well spent. Not only from a skills perspective, with critical thinking, public speaking, and group-work all highly sharpened, but it's just a lot of fun. From bonding with the team after practice, to singing road-trip songs on the way to a tournament, to the complete exhilaration of winning a trial and winning an award.
Mock trial is more than an extra-curricular activity here at UTC. It's more than rules and practices and competitions. It is, although sometimes it's hard to tell, more than a group of people who like to argue with each other; mock trial at UTC is a community, and that's something special.
