The Bell Tower Tournament has been moved to a virtual environment and will be managed by the American Mock Trial Association.
Furman will host a virtual regional tournament in 2022, which is the first round of the American Mock Trial Association’s (AMTA) annual national tournament structure. The Bell Tower Tournament is one of 29 regional events staged across the U.S., and the two-day competition will include 26 teams from the Southeast. The top six teams at the Bell Tower Regional will advance to the Opening Round Series of the National Championship Tournament. Founded in 1985, AMTA serves as the governing body for intercollegiate mock trial competitions. Each year, more than 7,000 undergraduate students representing 750 teams from over 400 colleges and universities compete in AMTA-sanctioned tournaments.
