Ernie Goodman Mock Trial Tournament (6040)

The Ernie Goodman Mock Trial Tournament is hosted by the Moot Court Board of Advocates and named for one of Michigan's finest trial attorneys and civil rights advocates, Mr. Ernie Goodman. Competitors, in teams of two, are required to attend two meetings and two workshops, to produce a trial notebook, and to try the competition case at least twice (once as plaintiff and once as defendant) in the preliminary rounds of the tournament. The trial will be evaluated by judges and attorneys who act as judge and jury. Two teams will then advance to the final round, with cash prizes available. The co-requisite for the course for academic credit is Evidence. Students must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or above to enroll in this competition. (Students without the co-requisites may compete, but not register for academic credit. See the competition rules to be published.)
