Yale Mock Trial Association
A student-run organization established in 1994
Founded as an undergraduate organization in 1994, the Yale Undergraduate Mock Trial Association is one of the top college Mock Trial teams in America. We won the National Championship in 2016, and in 2015, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2021 placed 1st in our division at Nationals and 2nd overall in the country. This past season, all of Yale's teams advanced to the National Championship, where A-team placed 3rd in its division.
The members who comprise the program have won hundreds of awards and have been recognized as All-American attorneys and witnesses. The entirely student-run association splits up into three teams of six to ten people each season. Throughout the year, these teams compete at different tournaments across the country.
The YMTA is a place for actors, debaters, competitors, and friends.
