The Mock Trail Board is a student-run organization dedicated to the mastery of trial skills and oral advocacy. The Board is run by an elected executive board consisting of the President, Vice President of Internal Competitions, Vice President of External Competitions, Treasurer, and Secretary, as well as a select number of members who fill appointed positions. Throughout the school year, the Board hosts internal competitions that give students the opportunity to compete for membership on the Board. Board members have the opportunity to represent the law school in a number of external competitions every year.

Kiera Lindsey

Kiera Lindsey

President

Kiera is a 3L who considers Panama City, Florida her home town.  She began her mock trial career at the University of Florida where she competed as both a witness and an attorney.  After competing in GW Law School’s 1L Mock Trial Competition, she went on to represent GW Law School as a 2L in the TYLA regional competition in D.C.  The skill she most appreciates learning from her time competing in mock trial is the ability to just keep going–even when the nerves are high!

Vice President of External Competitions

Anna is a 3L from New York. Having been introduced to Mock Trial in during her undergraduate studies, she joined the Board excited to continue to develop her voice as a litigator. As a member of the Executive Board, she’s glad to have the opportunity to support fellow students and introduce them to the litigation world (or public speaking more generally!). Her mock trial experiences have impacted her professional development in numerous ways, from her work in clinic to her comfort presenting to partners. Her favorite Federal Rule of Evidence is 801(d)(2)(e).
My mock trial experience has impacted my professional development in everything from the way I approach my representation in clinic to my comfort level when presenting to partners. I joined the Board to continue to develop my voice as a litigator, but as a member of the Exec. Board, I’m excited to have the opportunity to introduce more people to litigation and public speaking.  404(B)(2)(b) and 801(D)(2)(e) tie for my favorite Federal Rules of Evidence.
