Membership in Stetson’s Trial Team is a prestigious and highly coveted distinction that greatly enhances members’ law school experience. Stetson’s Trial Team is composed of a select group of students who compete in interscholastic competitions throughout the United States. See Prospective Members for information on eligibility and how to try out.
Stetson Law has earned a national reputation for excellence in trial advocacy. One of the reasons for this recognition is its award-winning Trial Team, which has placed first in so many national-level trial competitions throughout the country.
The trial competitions require students to demonstrate their trial advocacy skills in a simulated jury trial, during which they are evaluated by experienced trial lawyers and judges. Through this participation, a student will have the opportunity to perfect trial skills to a degree not possible through classroom instruction, and enjoy the most memorable experience of his or her law school education.
