What can I give to Duke Mock Trial?

Attitude. Duke Mock Trial is a team; collaboration is critical.  By approaching the case with an eagerness to both help others and learn from others, members can create a stronger team.

Commitment. Without commitment, talent is little. Duke Mock Trial competes across the country several times each semester, but in order to reach these competitive tournaments members must devote the necessary time.

Competitiveness. Duke Mock Trial is among the best programs in the country; every member of the program contributes to that level of competition by expressing a desire to win and complementing that desire with action.

Work EthicRegardless of each candidate and member’s background, work ethic is the most important factor in determining success.  Whether in Duke Mock Trial tryouts or the courtroom, willingness to work and improve means more than skill or experience.
