Speech 241

Open to all students interested in learning or polishing skills in communication. Mock Trial, as sanctioned by the American Mock Trial Association, is a co-curricular activity intended to foster the development of undergraduate students in the areas of leadership, public speaking, rhetoric, and persuasion through a legal forum. Currently, approximately 600 teams from over 350 universities and colleges compete in AMTA sponsored tournaments. Students may repeat the course for credit each semester during their four-year course of study.
