Tech Mock Trial Team One of Nation's Best
The Georgia Institute of Technology’s mock trial team — housed in the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts — ranks among the nation’s best. Mock Trial provides an opportunity for students to learn about the American legal system. Students play both attorneys and witnesses on all sides of the case, develop case theories and witness characters, and handle rules of evidence arguments. MSE student Pranav Grandham serves as the Vice President of Mock Trial.
The team has appeared in the semifinal round of the national tournament two of the last three years, narrowly missing a trip to the 2017 championship round that was eventually won by Yale University.
That resurgence, after a decade away from the top spots in the mock trial world, helps explain why a record 32 new students tried out for the team in 2018 — despite the fact that Georgia Tech does not offer a law degree or provide scholarships for mock trial students.
