Since 1995, Furman University has been home to one of the top mock trial programs in the nation.
Our mock trial program is consistently ranked among the top 20 teams in the United States and has made 18 consecutive appearances at the American Mock Trial Association's National Championship Tournament. Our teams comprise over 30 students from diverse majors. Members develop and polish their skills in trial advocacy, public speaking, and critical thinking. Paladin Mock Trial is distinctive: It awards renewable scholarships to select first-year students, hosts one of the nation's most prestigious mock trial tournaments annually, and offers a one-week summer camp for outstanding high school mock trial participants.
