The University of Pennsylvania is proud to host its 8th annual Benjamin Franklin Invitational Mock Trial tournament. Judged by practicing attorneys as well as Penn Law School students, we are excited to welcome to our campus the most elite high school programs in the state of Pennsylvania.

Tournament DETails

The tournament will be run just like a collegiate tournament, comprised of four trials, split between the two days. The tournament will take place on January 25th and 26th, 2020. A tournament schedule will be released on our website closer to the tournament date.

BFI Seminar

A Mock Trial Seminar will be hosted by the members of Penn's highly successful mock trial team on the Friday before the Tournament begins. Coaches will be able to register for this event while registering their teams for the tournament. Space is limited, so be sure to register soon!
