The Baylor Undergraduate Mock Trial Team (BUMT) is a group of undergraduate students that advocates fictional court cases against other universities. Each year, we spend hundreds of hours preparing our best courtroom presentation for that year’s unique case. Since 1985, the American Mock Trial Association has hosted more than 600 teams in a series of tournaments across the country to determine the most capable trial advocates and witnesses in the country. In order to compete, we travel to many of these tournaments each year, meaning that we try each year’s case dozens of times. In a given mock trial, three students portray witnesses while three student attorneys give cross examinations, direct examinations, opening statements, and closing arguments. Mock trial gives its members the opportunity to develop their courtroom mettle, create engaging witness, and develop the ability to speak, argue and think well.
