In late 2017, a group of talented FIU students established the Panther Mock Trial (PMT) Club at FIU, a new organization housed within the Honors College, but open to both Honors College students and non-Honors College students alike.
As of the 2018-2019 competitive season, PMT has two teams: team Halpert and team Schrute. Both teams are coached by a group of six attorneys, led by Honors College instructor and lead attorney Kristen A. Corpion, Esq.
We believe all advocates can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
Our mission is to introduce students, through participation in simulated courtroom trials and other law related activities, to important aspects of our judicial system, with special attention paid to trial by jury.
Our vision reflects our values: integrity, service, excellence and teamwork. We hope to help improve the advocacy skills of all our members and aid in the development of skills that will facilitate their transition from school to work.
