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.
Current Executive Board (2019-2020)
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!
