Bell Tower Tournament

Furman University will host the Bell Tower Tournament on March 20-22, 2020.  The tournament is the culminating regional event of the American Mock Trial Association’s (AMTA) season.  The three-day competition will bring 24 teams from across the nation to Furman’s campus. Six teams will advance to the National Championship Tournament in Chicago. Founded in 1985, AMTA serves as the governing body for intercollegiate mock trial competitions. Each year, more than 6,000 undergraduate students representing 750 teams from over 400 colleges and universities compete in AMTA-sanctioned tournaments.

Furman University is one of eight sites around the country to determine which teams will compete at the National Championship Tournament in Chicago.
