2023 Public Service Mock Trial Competition

The Ohio Attorney General’s Office is looking to build a team of Capital Law students to participate in the 2023 Public-Service Mock Trial Competition. It is anticipated that this year’s mock trial will be held in person at the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas on Friday, November 17th.

Capital has historically done well in this competition, and this year should be no different. This year’s team will be coached by Attorneys from the Ohio AG's Office.  Thus, if you are interested in going into public service and/or working for the AG’s Office after graduation, this is a great way to network and to build your resume. It’s also a great way to work on your trial advocacy skills. In addition, you are awarded one credit hour for participating in this event, which you can add to your schedule for either the fall or spring semester (bearing in mind that the competition is held in the fall).

The time commitment is relatively minimal, with each student practicing two to four hours per week and completing some outside prep work for the practices. The coaches also hold a dress rehearsal before the competition.

Because the AG’s office would like to start practicing in just a couple of weeks, please let me know if you are interested ASAP. Tryouts will be September 15th! To be considered for the team, please submit your resume and a brief statement of interest by Saturday, Sept. 13th. Send application materials to Milas Stevens, mstevens3@law.capital.edu, and Jacob Fabina, jfabina@law.capital.edu.
