The Tennessee Mock Trial Association values the challenges and opportunities that Mock Trial affords our members. In our daily lives and in our competitions, we strive to embrace these values that we believe represent the best of our organization and our community.
Leadership allows someone the unique ability to affect positive change by giving them the chance to stand up for the voices of their organization or community. As a leader for UTMT, I have developed key skills that I will use for the rest of my life, such as confidence, assertiveness, and public speaking.
Participating in Mock Trial gives you the chance to engage in a meaningful national discussion. This organization allows you to prepare for any career that requires critical thinking and refined communication. As a part of UTMT, you will be challenged to grow as both an individual and a team member.
When I first came to college, I struggled to find my place, and a real community. Joining UTMT was one of the best decisions I have ever made, because it helped me get involved and make real friends. Mock Trial has been such a rewarding and fun experience for me to be involved in, and it's great to find a smaller community within a large university.
