NUMT Needs Your Help!


Northwestern Mock Trial is a team of 30 students that compete at a national level against other universities around the country. We’ve recently sent two teams to the national tournament, brought home awards for having some of the best individual competitors in the country, as well as the NINTH best team in the country, and we’ve sent many of our own on to go to some of the top law schools in the nation, including Harvard Law.

And we need your help.

One week before the school year started, our university pulled $12,000 of previously-guaranteed funding. These financial realities have forced us to cut a team, and we have had to decline our bids to many prestigious tournaments simply because we cannot afford the entry fees and travel costs.

If you could consider donating to our program, it would be so greatly appreciated. Every cent goes back towards keeping our teams on the road and preparing for nationals. One major emphasis is accessibility - without an income, our team can’t offer assistance in paying for flights or hotels, meaning that our activity would become financially impossible for many of our members, including myself.

We use PayPal as our donation platform. Click "Donate" below to be connected to PayPal. If you have questions about your donation or other donation options, please email
