2nd Annual Market Street Invitational


DUMT is happy to be bringing the Market Street Invitational back to help kick off another exciting year of Mock Trial on October 17-18! This year’s competition features a wide range of talent from returning local competitors including Temple and University of Delaware to John Hopkins and George Washington traveling for their chance to take home the first place trophy.

While we can’t shut down Market St. like the pope, Drexel Mock Trial is working hard to make sure the University City campus is prepared so that the teams, coaches, and judges can have the best experience while in Philadelphia. If you are interested in judging please fill out this form, and if you would like additional information feel free to reach out to our tournament chair Christina Schweingruber at marketstreetinvitational@gmail.com.

DUMT High School Summer Camp

It’s that time of the year again! DU Mock Trial is hosting our 2015 summer camp for high school students. Our nationally-competitive mock trial program takes students with a wide range of experience levels, hosts presentations to teach them mock trial basics, and splits them into teams of 6 to prepare both sides of a case for the final trial. Each team has at least one coach, and aside from classroom-style presentations, teams periodically meet with their coaches in workshops throughout the week to work on trial material. In this camp, you get to speak, act, meet new friends, and have lots of fun!

Interested? Check out the link to sign up! Select “Law” in the panel on your left-hand side, and click “Mock Trial Experience.” This is a non-residential camp. For more information, see our flyer below, or contact our head coach, Michael Vitlip at vitlip@drexel.edu. We look forward to seeing you this summer!
