University of Iowa Mock Trial


Welcome to the University of Iowa's Mock Trial Program!

Welcome to the University of Iowa Mock Trial (UIMT) website! Here, you will find lots of information about what mock trial is, how it works at the University of Iowa, and how you can become a part of UIMT. The short version though is this:
  • Mock Trial is a competitive team activity in which more than 400+ colleges and universities across the nation participate. Mock trial participants "go to trial" with their teammates against other schools and are scored on their ability to speak persuasively, think critically, and utilize legal principles appropriately. 
  • At the University of Iowa, mock trial is a student organization, but it also has the backing of the University of Iowa and real attorneys and law students coach and prepare the teams for competitions.
  • Individuals interested in mock trial should click here to learn more and/or e-mail UIMT at for more information. Mock trial is rewarding on many levels, and individuals who join can look forward to having fun, winning tournaments, making friends, and much, much more.
