“We are humbled by the opportunity to compete against the top teams in the nation, while representing Howard,” said Marquis H. Barnett, president of the Mock Trial team. “We know that we stand on a great legacy.”
The AMTA was founded in 1985 by Dean Richard Calkins of Drake Law School. AMTA serves as the governing body for intercollegiate mock trial competition. The Howard University Mock Trial team was the first team in the history of the AMTA to win two national championship tournaments in the same year and is the only HBCU team ever to win a national championship in Mock Trial.
