WHEN IT ALL BEGAN

NUMT started in 1985, when the American Mock Trial Association (AMTA) was first started. Northwestern has made it once to the final championship round in 1986, ultimately placing second. 

Northwestern has been known to be a consistently competitive program. We usually split our program into four separate teams and during the '07-'08, '08-'09, and '09-'10 seasons, we qualified all four teams to the Opening Round National Championships (ORCS). 

During '07-'08 and '08-'09, NUMT sent two teams both years to Nationals. The next time NUMT sent two teams in one year was the '14-'15 season. 

Our program regularly attends the National Championship Tournament. When we qualify for Nationals, we consistently place in the Top 15, placing 4th in 2012, 8th in 2015, and 13th in 2016.
