My name is Emily Francis, and I am a sophomore Journalism and Legal Studies double major with a minor in Dance. I just started mock trial in the fall of 2012, and being on the team has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. 

Although it doesn’t sound fun from its description, my favorite part of mock trial is the long and sometimes grueling tournaments. Two days, four trials, minimal nutrition and sleep…but so much fun and learning takes place at the same time. It’s just sometime you have to experience for yourself, because even the epic stories don’t do it justice.

The best moment so far has been at the last tournament when I won a top attorney award. I hope to have many more of those moments!
