The trial teams from Syracuse University College of Law recently concluded one of their most impressive seasons—and it’s not quite over yet. Syracuse team advocates have
earned a spot at the Baylor Law School 2014 Top Gun National Mock Trial Competition taking place June 4-8 in Waco, Texas.  The invitation-only mock trial tournament
takes the best trial advocates from 16 of the top advocacy schools in the nation and has them go head-to-head for the honor of being named National Top
Gun. The first-place winner receives $10,000.

Founded in 2010, Baylor Law’s Top Gun National Mock Trial Competition creates a challenging atmosphere for competitors. Unlike other mock trial competitions, participants
do not receive the case file until they arrive in Waco — just 24 hours before the first round of trials begin.

The law schools invited to the 2014 Top Gun National Mock Trial Competition are:     

Chicago-Kent College of Law    

Duquesne University School of Law

Faulkner University, Jones School of Law   

Hofstra University, Maurice A. Deane School of Law

Temple University, Beasley School of Law
