Mock Trial

Our mock trial program is among the best in the nation and has made 20 appearances at the American Mock Trial Association’s National Championship Tournament. Members develop and polish their skills in trial advocacy, public speaking, and critical thinking. Paladin Mock Trial is distinctive: It hosts one of the nation’s most prestigious mock trial tournaments annually, and offers a one-week summer program for outstanding high school mock trial participants.

Since 1995, Furman University has been home to one of the top mock trial programs in the nation.
