Rutgers Opens Fall Season At Fordham and CUBAIT

Rutgers Mock Trial kicked off its season with great performances at two October tournaments: Fordham’s Sapientia et Doctrina IX Fall Invitational Tournament, and Columbia University’s Big Apple Invitational Tournament (CUBAIT). 

After two weekends of intense competition, RUMTA’s teams and competitors were rewarded with an Honorable Mention for the C-Team at Fordham. RUMTA’s teams challenged a number of widely-recognized and competitive mock trial programs, including those from Iona, UMBC, NYU, UPenn, and Quinnipiac.

RUMTA’s A-Team also had a strong showing at CUBAIT, facing teams from Yale, Colorado College, NYU, and Harvard. RUMTA congratulates President and Senior Nicoletta Eby on her Outstanding Attorney Award with 18 ranks. Congratulations to all RUMTA competitors on an outstanding performance and a strong start to another successful season!
