National Trial Competition
The National Trial Competition (NTC) was established in 1975 to encourage and strengthen students’ advocacy skills through quality competition and valuable interaction with members of the bench and bar. The national program is administered by the Texas Young Lawyers Association (TYLA) and co-sponsored by the American College of Trial Lawyers (ACTL).
The Advocacy Program is proud to host a qualifying tournament for NTC featuring teams from around the region. The national program attracts teams from more than 140 law schools and involves more than 1,000 law students each year.
In February 2023, the Advocacy Program hosted the DC regional competition with the assistance of the Mock Trial Honor Society. The competition featured 35 trials with 40 advocates, 152 witnesses, and 108 judges and attorneys participating.
