The Penn Law Mock Trial Association (PLMTA) gives Penn Law students an opportunity to learn and practice trial advocacy skills in a live setting. Training sessions, held weekly each fall, are run by adjunct professor and professional litigator Bob Englert. The skills taught by Bob and refined through competition include delivering opening and closing statements, making objections, and having strong courtroom presence. PLMTA members compete at tournaments throughout the country, and have competed in New York City, Washington D.C., Texas, and Puerto Rico in recent years. PLMTA also hosts an annual intramural competition, where law students form teams and compete to have their names inscribed on the Englert Cup. PLMTA is proud of its strong alumni network, and former PLMTA members come back each year to help judge the intramural competition.
