Harvard Law School won the very first National Trial Competition 41 years ago and the school repeated its performance this year.
The National Trial Competition, hosted by the Texas Young Lawyers Association in partnership with the American College of Trial Lawyers, is the largest mock trial competition in the country.
Of the original 300 teams in the competition, the top two winners from 14 regions advanced to national finals in Dallas, which were held March 30 through April 3. More than 150 attorneys volunteered to judge and more than 100 volunteer witnesses participated in the event.
Other top finishing teams were:
California Western School of Law
Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law
Yale School of Law
Mitchell Hamline College of Law
Samford University, Cumberland School of Law
University of Iowa College of Law
University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law

The National Trial Competition is designed to expose law students to the nature of trial practice and to serve as a supplement to their education.
