"Mock trial was hands down the most practical experience I had in law school. Nothing prepared me as much as my time on the mock trial team for practicing law." -Zach Porter (JD candidate '17)
GGU National Trial Team
Membership in GGU's Trial Team is a prestigious and highly coveted distinction that greatly enhances members’ law school experience. GGU's Trial Team is composed of a select group of students who compete in regional and national competitions throughout the United States.
GGU has earned a national reputation for excellence in trial advocacy. One of the reasons for this recognition is its award-winning Trial Team.
The trial competitions require students to demonstrate their trial advocacy skills in a simulated jury trial, during which they are evaluated by experienced trial lawyers and judges.
Through this participation, a student will have the opportunity to perfect trial skills to a degree not possible through classroom instruction, and enjoy the most memorable experience of his or her law school education.
