Currently, two different Mock Trial classes are offered through the Creighton Heider College of Busienss. In the Fall, a 2-credit Mock Trial seminar is taught by the Mock Trial Team’s moderator, Mr. George McNary, J.D. In the Spring, a 1-credit Mock Trial practicum is offered. Both classes have BUS call numbers. BUS 321 (Fall Class) does NOT require instructor consent. BUS 322 (Spring Class) does require instructor consent. If you are interested in taking the classes or have any questions about the classes, please contact Mr. George McNary, J.D. (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information. Also, please note that enrollment in the Mock Trial classes is optional. A student does not need to be enrolled in the Mock Trial classes in order to participate in Mock Trial.
Mock Trial Seminar
Students view the American legal system from the vantage point of the counsel table and the witness stand, as they learn about the main aspects of a trial. The class hears from attorneys, law-students, and judges who discuss their experiences in the legal field. In all, the seminar provides excellent preparation for Mock Trial competition.
Mock Trial Practicum
As “mock” attorneys and witnesses, students put their legal and dramatic skills to the test as they participate with the Creighton Mock Trial Team in tournaments across the United States. Teams compete in several invitational tournaments and in the regional tournament. Teams may also receive a bid to the national tournament.
