Trial Advocacy Board

The Cumberland Trial Advocacy Board is dedicated to educating and training law students to become competent, aggressive and ethical trial attorneys. Cumberland’s clinical program is nationally recognized. The Trial Board sponsors mock trial competitions each semester in which students compete in various mock trials that resemble real federal trials judged by experienced student advocates, attorneys, and judges. The Trial Board encourages freshman to participate as witnesses during their first semester and in the freshman competition the second semester. In addition, the Board sponsors negotiation, mediation, and client counseling competitions.
