Mock Trial

On behalf of the entire Harvard Mock Trial Association, I would like to invite you and your team to the Harvard Mock Trial High School Training Seminar. Held on the historic Harvard campus, this special event is designed to enhance the skills of mock trialers of all levels of experience through a two-day program of extensive presentations, one-on-one preparation sessions, and scrimmages, all led by members of the Harvard Mock Trial Team.

The Harvard Mock Trial Association is currently recognized as one of the most competitive mock trial programs in the country. This spring, the HMTA performed better than any school in college mock trial history. After months of training and competition, our A-team and B-team outranked over 500 teams in the country to win first and second place in their division at the National College Championship Tournament. The Harvard team currently has the most college mock trial "All-Americans" in the country, with five attorneys and eight witnesses winning this prestigious award at the national competition.

We continue to excel in competition despite the fact that every year, we bring new members onto our team, many of whom have no prior experience in mock trial. Every year, we watch as our new members consistently outperform and outrank even the most experienced competition. We know that this success is a result of the training techniques that we use to teach our new members, and last year we decided that it was time to start sharing some of our training methods, which is why we organized this seminar. By working directly with students, teaching them the very process that has allowed our witnesses and attorneys to excel in national competition, the members of Harvard Mock Trial are confident that they can teach absolutely anyone how to be better, teaching new skills and refining technique for even the most successful mock trialer. Many of the members of the Harvard Mock Trial Team competed at the national level in high school, and after joining our program have excelled at the national level in college. We believe our collective experience competing in countless rounds of mock trial can provide a wealth of benefits to even the most successful high school program. We were thrilled with the positive response our seminar got from all 100 participants last year, and this year we plan to make it even better.
