Notre Dame Mock Trial is a nationally competitive program, uniquely classified as a class, a club, and a team. Together, our members work to learn courtroom procedure, understand the federal rules of evidence, and improve our public speaking skills to compete at tournaments throughout the school year. We've had a fantastic year, placing in the top 5 at several invitationals, as well as qualifying two teams to the Opening Round of the National Championship. We are so proud of everything we've been able to accomplish as a team, and are already looking forward to improving our performances next year!
During this exciting time, we have the unique opportunity to earn a portion of one million dollars! Make a $10 gift on Notre Dame Day (April 23 – 24), and receive 5 votes to cast. The total number of votes we receive decides our percentage of the $1 million.
Going to invitational tournaments in the fall gives us the opportunity to practice and improve before making a run at regionals and nationals in the spring. This is important, but it can also be expensive. Please consider making a donation to help us cover things like trial materials and tournament fees so that our program can be as successful as possible!
