Zenzele Price ’18 asks if you’re the next yung hotshot lawyer like this guy to the right:
Want an excuse to suit up and travel around the East Coast this school year? Have you ever wanted to knock a table over while screaming OBJECTION, YOUR HONOR? Do you keep a scrapbook of Hillary Clinton’s pantsuits in your Hope Chest? Do you enjoy acting, writing, attention, judgement, road trips, crippling competition jitters, practicing speeches in the mirror, winning, sometimes not winning, fact patterns, bow ties, arguing, HIGH INTENSITY SITUATIONS, thinking on your feet, being-over-caffeinated and under-prepared, and/or devoting yourself body and soul to the letter of made-up law?
If any of the above applies to you, then come to the mock trial info session THIS SATURDAY! Come for the fictional case, stay for the very real friendships, tournaments, and pantsuits.
Date: Saturday, September 17
Time: 2-3 PM
Place: PAC 001
From Erica Arensman ’17:
Do you like to argue? Do you love watching Legally Blonde but think all the courtroom scenes are terribly unrealistic? Are you interested in putting on a costume and pretending to be a policeman with a Russian accent?
If any of those things apply to you, Wes Mock Trial wants YOU to come to our info session this Friday at 6pm. We’ll be answering any questions you have about the team, and you’ll be able to learn about try-outs and sign up for a time slot.
Check out the Facebook event page here for the location, and contact Simon or Erica with any questions/concerns.

From Dana Leib ’14:
Are you interested in the law? Do you like telling people when you object to things? Do you enjoy commanding a room with sexy words like “probative” or “adjudicative”?
Then you should join the Wesleyan Mock Trial Team. We are a student-run organization that competes on a regional and even a national level against other university teams. As we construct cases,we discuss and form legal theories, take on witness roles, and lawyer up.
Whether you’re fluent in legalese or just love the Law and Order marathons, Mock Trial is a great way to develop your public speaking and critical thinking skills while gaining an understanding of the American legal system.
If you can’t make the informational meeting and/or want more information, contact dleib(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.
Date: September 16th
Time: 7PM – 8PM
