The Mock Trial Team
The team consistently achieves top national rankings in the annual
intercollegiate Mock Trial Tournaments. “Trials” simulate genuine
courtroom conditions, with a jury and actual judges presiding.
Students perform as attorneys and witnesses. In 2010, the team
capped the 16th straight season that St. John’s has
earned a bid to the national championship’s opening rounds.
Overall, St. John’s placed sixth out of 28 teams in the Atlantic
Region, which includes powerhouses like Columbia, NYU and Yale.
The Legal Society
The society, which has chapters at the Queens and Staten Island
campuses, regularly invites practicing lawyers, judges and law
school representatives to campus to talk with students.
New York City
We also recommend that you take advantage of New York City’s status
as home to many local, state and federal courts, as well as major
law firms. Students also benefit from St. John’s location in terms
of internships with law firms, government agencies and other
employers throughout the metropolitan area.
