Lawyers volunteer to assist students as team advisers, scorekeepers, and regional coordinators. Each year, the winning team goes on to represent Pennsylvania in the national competition. Practices for Becahi’s Mock Trial Team begin in early October with our Law School Boot Camp and continue through to the Regional Competition, which is held between mid-January and mid-February.

Model UN is an educational simulation of the United Nations.  Students become delegates or representatives of UN member nations on various committees.  Within their committees, students present, discuss and debate resolutions, which they have written, in an attempt to solve world issues while staying true to the position of their nation.  At the conclusion of debate, resolutions are voted upon by the committee as a whole.  Committees are chaired by student moderators, who award outstanding delegates and their resolutions medals at the closing ceremony
