“How to Join”
A good place to start is to find a current member of the Liti-Gators and get to know what we’re all about. The entire first week of school we will be tabling in Turlington Plaza. Stop by and say hi!
Info-Sessions: These are required. Here, we will talk about some mock trial basics along with important information regarding the try-out process, which will take place during the second week of September. We encourage people from all backgrounds and majors to try-out. Many people start out with little to no mock trial experience. We will teach you the skills you need.
Our info sessions for 2018 will be held on Tuesday, August 28, and Wednesday, August 29, at 7pm in Pugh Hall.
If you can’t make it to one of our info sessions, check out our Facebook page for a livestreamed video of this year’s info session, or watch our info session from 2016 here. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and phone number to set up a tryout slot.
Try-Out Information: As mentioned before, specific information regarding try-outs will be released at the info sessions. In general, for a try-out you will be required to perform two acts depending on which role you are auditioning for.
As an attorney, you must give an opening and perform a cross-examination on one of our team members. As a witness, you must memorize a direct examination (which will be given to you) to the best of your ability and also prepare to be cross-examined by one of our members.
After signing up for a try-out date, you will be given help from past team members to guide you along the process of preparing for the audition. We will let you know at the info sessions when and where our “office hours” will be held.
Try-outs this year will be held from September 3rd to September 7th.
