The School of Criminology and Criminal Justice Mock Trial team, coached by Frank de la Torre, participated in the National Competition in Washington, D.C. The team beat FIU 2-1 in the first round and then lost to the eventual champion, University of Florida.

In a consolation match, Florida Atlantic conquered Texas Tech – an extra sweet victory since they had defeated us in 2022. Next up: The Spring 2024 FIU Invitational Mock Trial Competition when all five Florida Atlantic mock trial teams compete for the win.
