In mock trial, student teams participate in trials that follow legal procedures to simulate real litigation. Acting as lawyers and witnesses, each team has the opportunity to present both the prosecution and the defense cases to real judges, and volunteer attorneys score their presentations.

The team is coached by attorney and Juniata alumnus David P. Andrews

“We are proud that our Mock Trial team has advanced to the nationals every year of our existence, and that we have been successful in winning several invitational tournaments.”

Attorney Andrews has led Juniata Mock Trial to the competitive Opening Round of the National Championship Series every year the team has existed. Andrews has led the team to three invitational tournament wins in the past three years and brings his 43 years of trial litigation experience to the table to help Juniata students realize their potential in competition.
