Columbia Mock Trial


Founded in 1998, Columbia University Mock Trial has since developed into one of the top programs in the nation. Last year, we finished 3rd at the National Tournament and received 3 individual All-American Awards. We also won the Downtown Invitational, and received several individual Outstanding Witness and Attorney awards. We are looking forward to even more success in our 2017-2018 season!
