What is UCSB Mock Trial?

Founded 20 years ago, the UCSB Mock Trial team is a highly competitive organization with over a hundred applicants every year and just a 10% acceptance rate. In this last year's season, we ranked third at the UCI Anteaters Invitational, earned two bids at both Regionals and the Opening Round of Championships, and qualified for the National Championships in Minnesota.

Who are our members?

UCSB Mock Trial prides itself in having team members from diverse backgrounds who share strong ambition, value hard work, and function cohesively-- like a family!

Is mock trial for me?

UCSB Mock Trial caters to interests in law, public speaking, debate, acting, theater, and improv. It is one of UCSB's only pre-law organizations, yet students need not have an interest in law, nor experience in mock trial to join. It is a great place to gain professional skills, better one's public speaking, and make friends.

Mock trial is a rigorous, challenging, creative, academic, and fulfilling activity. And trust us- it's addicting. Try out!
