How to Join the Trial Team

The National Trial Team holds tryouts each spring, open to first-year day students, first-year evening students transferring to the day program, and second-year evening students.  In round one, each student is provided with a trial packet and presents a closing argument to the members of the team.  Those students called back for round two then prepare a cross examination from the same case packet.  The new members are chosen by the existing team under the guidance of the coaching staff. If there are questions about the tryout process, please reach out to the team at trialteam@law.umaryland.edu.
