Top Gun National Mock Trial Competition

The Top Gun National Mock Trial Competition is an innovative, invitation-only mock trial tournament where the single best advocates from some of the top 16 trial advocacy schools go head-to-head for the honor of Top Gun. The winner earns a $10,000 prize.

Unlike other mock trial competitions, participants do not receive the case file until they arrive in Waco, a mere 24 hours before the first round of trials begin. Preparation includes reviewing depositions, records, and photographs, and taking a trip to the actual places where events in the case supposedly occurred. Shortly before each round, competitors are assigned a witness or witnesses who may be used at their discretion during the round. The jurors for each round are distinguished trial lawyers and judges.

The Competing Schools for the 2017 Top Gun National Mock Trial Competition will be Announced Soon.
