During NBLSA’s 2002 Convention, the body voted to create a National Mock Trial Competition to develop future lawyers with strong courtroom skills to prepare for various components of a trial. Each year, hundreds of competitors compete on the regional levels with the hopes of ultimately becoming one of the top three teams in the nation. To date, the Thurgood Marshall Mock Trial Competition (“TMMTC”) is one of the largest and most respected law school mock trial competitions in the country.
