Mock Trial Boot Camp gives students who are interested in law, public policy, and leadership an opportunity to gain knowledge and skills in legal analysis.  Through a series of playful mini-trials, serious strategy sessions, and practical workshops, you will take your legal skills and understanding to a new level. Here’s your chance to tackle the issues with world-class attorneys, judges and law professors. Our final trial will be held in the Federal Courthouse in Boston.

Attorney Jason G. Happel, renowned mock trial coach and judge, and Maddie Ziff, Brandeis alum ('13) and former captain of the Brandeis Mock Trial Team, will moderate the Boot Camp, welcoming an all-star cast from the Boston legal community.

Participants in our Mock Trial Program have credited their Brandeis experience with helping them get key roles in their mock trial teams back at home- including captain!

No prior experience is necessary.
