Information Sessions

Attending an information session is mandatory. We will be hosting two information sessions.

Tryout Process

STEP 1: Fill out the Application Form (click the button below) BY Tuesday, SEPTEMBER 27, 2022 at 11:59 PM. It will ask you about your availability during certain time slots. We will email you your assigned 20-minute audition slot on Wednesday SEPTEMBER 28, 2021. The application will also contain a few questions to help us get to know you a bit better before you try out.

STEP 2: After that, start preparing the four audition components: (1) Opening, (2) Debate, (3) Witness Monologue, and (4) Cross-Examination. (Note*) If you are auditioning as an attorney, you must do all four. If you are just auditioning as a witness, we ask that
you prepare two witnesses. That would be two Witness Monologues and two Cross-Examinations.

STEP 3: Practice, practice, practice! We want to see what you’re made of, so we recommend running your material a few times and trying to memorize it so we can see you at your best.

STEP 4: Attend your 20-minute tryout! This year’s tryouts will go from Thursday, September 29 - Sunday, October 2 and will be in-person at the UCLA Anderson School of Management G Building 6th floor Room G6.04 (See map below). Give yourself 10 extra minutes to find the building and the room.
