Capital University Law School's Mock Trial program provides students practical training, which is difficult to receive as a student outside of an academic setting. The Mock Trial program offers students the opportunity to compete on an inter-school basis, utilizing neutral fact patterns in a variety of practice areas to test the students' advocacy skills. The Mock Trial program concludes with a trial competition, where students participate in every aspect of a civil jury trial before judges and litigators. In recent years, there has been an increased call by clients, employers, and the American Bar Association to increase experiential learning. The Mock Trial program provides students with this experiential learning opportunity to prepare them for legal practice after passing the bar exam.
