YMCA Youth Judicial Mock Trial Competition

The Youth Judicial Mock Trial Competition is an annual event, typically held the second weekend of November in Montgomery, AL.  At this competition, students from around Alabama compete as six person teams representing the point of view of either the prosecution or defense.  Each team is comprised of three attorneys and three witnesses who are guided by a set of contrived "facts" and witness depositions.  During the course of the weekend, students typically argue their case 4 to 5 times.

UMS-Wright has a long history with this program earning honors such as the Top Defense Team, several Top Ten finishes, Most Outstanding Defense Witness, and other accolades.
