    Welcome back! Today we're talking with Sara O'Connor, one of our law school tutors, about setting yourself up for success in your mock trial class and/or competition team. Mock trial is not required, but it can be very rewarding and provide great experience for your future legal career.

    In this episode, we discuss:

    • How to earn a spot on a competitive mock trial course or team
    • What you can expect to learn in your mock trial course
    • Preparing for a mock trial competition
    • The events of the competition itself and how to be successful – stay calm!
    • How the scoring system works and what you’ll be judged on
