About the National Trial Team

Temple’s National Trial Team generally consists of 16 to 18 students, 2L or above. Team members are chosen through a competitive selection process. Membership brings academic credit. Team members enroll in two Advanced Trial Advocacy Courses: Pre-Trial Motions Practice and Evidence Strategies. In their first year of membership, students earn four credits. In their second year on the team, students earn three credits. Team members compete in at least two regional or national competitions per year – one fall and one spring.
