Mock Trial Association members gain hands-on knowledge about the theory and practice of law in the United States. The Davidson team operates both within in the American Mock Trial Association community and internally on the College's campus. Off campus they compete against other colleges in both regional and national events. On campus they host several speed debate competitions.
The Pre-Law Society seeks to educate Davidson students about legal issues and education, and serves as a resource for students considering careers in the legal field. It arranges visits to law firms and law schools and invites legal professionals and educators to speak on campus. It also organizes affordable LSAT preparation courses and counsels students pursuing law school admission.
