PSCI 365 - Mock Trial


Credits: (1)
Using the rules and the case developed by the American Mock Trial Association, students prepare a mock court case and present it at an invitational tournament (in the fall) or a regional tournament (in the spring). Cases alternate between civil matters (in odd years) and criminal matters (in even years). Using this case, students learn rules of evidence and courtroom procedures and develop public-speaking and critical-thinking skills. Attendance at meetings outside of the scheduled class time and travel to tournaments are required. This is a one credit course and as such, it does not count as an elective  toward the political science major or minor. (As needed).
