2nd Annual Albany Mock Trial Invitational

On January 23-24, 2021, University at Albany Mock Trial, with WCI’s pre-law lecturer and faculty coach Marcie Newton, hosted its 2nd Annual Capital Region Clash Mock Trial Invitational via Zoom. Twenty-two teams from around the nation competed at the invitational, including a bye-buster team. “Hosting an invitational online was challenging but enormously rewarding,” said Marcie. “Our Mock Trial team proudly represented our University in a number of ways. We were among the top three highest ranking teams. We also stepped up to the plate to host an invitational online to show collegial spirit during these extraordinary times in which we’re living. This afforded many teams an opportunity to hone their skills in preparation for Regionals.” The tournament was sponsored by the University at Albany and Albany Law School Collaboration Seminar and Conference Fund, University at Albany Student Association, and University at Albany Alumni Association.
