The Hon. James P. King Moot Court/Mock Trial Team

Moot Court/Mock Trial Team

As a member of the American Mock Trial Association, Siena competes in intercollegiate mock trials and has enjoyed noteworthy success in both regional and national competitions.

Len Cutler, Ph.D., serves as the team’s educator coach and is joined by the Distinguished
Jurist in Residence and accomplished local alumni attorneys.

During the spring 2013 semester, Siena's team went up against schools such as NYU, Princeton, Holy Cross and Brown in the regional round and received a bid for the national tournament. The team also brought home four individual awards, more than any other team in the tournament. Co-captains, Christine Armstrong ’13 and Mara Afzali ’14, both won All Region Attorney awards. Also, Steven Procopio ‘15 and Christine Armstrong ’13 were named All Region Best Witness winners. Armstrong was the only competitor in Boston who received both an attorney and a witness award.
