Mock Trial Scholarship at North Central College
Mock Trial provides valuable experience for anyone planning to pursue a legal career. However, this is not a pre-law activity at North Central College; students from all academic majors and interests are welcome and encouraged to participate. Participating in Mock Trial develops public speaking skills, the ability to think on your feet, and powers of persuasion.
The Mock Trial tournament season runs through fall and winter terms (and into the spring term when the team advances to nationals). Members will compete with teams from across the region and the country, such as the University of Michigan, the University of Chicago, and the University of Notre Dame.
The Mock Trial Scholarship is funded by North Central College and awarded to incoming new students and new transfer students who indicate a commitment to the North Central College Mock Trial Team. The scholarship is renewable; renewal of the scholarship in subsequent years is based on continued participation on the North Central College Mock Trial Team and meeting the other criteria of the scholarship.
