Welcome to the home of UCM Mock Trial, a student organization at the University of Central Missouri, in Warrensburg, Missouri. Founded in 1994 by Criminal Justice professor Dennis Laster, and continued for nearly 25 years thanks to the generous support of both UCM’s Criminal Justice and Political Science departments, UCM Mock Trial has a long and rich history of former competitors, coaches, and a growing alumni network in the legal community across the United States. The team’s success is a part of the tradition of academic intercollegiate competition success at UCM along side LAE-GED, The Talking Mules, Model UN, and DECA, to name a few.
This site includes information regarding mock trial in general, information for active UCM student competitors, and an archive of UCM Mock Trial past outcomes, pictures, and team members as far back as we have available. Each menu tab has something to discover. If you are looking for information about the organization, please read on and see the contact information provided below. Former students with pictures or information to share, please let us know so we can add it to the site!
Thanks for stopping by!
