Tryout Process

STEP 1: Fill out the Application Form (click the button below) BY WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2021 at 11:59 PM. It will ask you about your availability during certain time slots. We will email you your assigned 20-minute audition slot on THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 31, 2021. The application will also contain a few questions to help us get to know you a bit better before you try out.

STEP 2: After that, start preparing our four audition components: (1) Opening, (2) Debate, (3) Witness Monologue, and (4) Cross Examination. (Note: If you are just auditioning as a witness, you will need to prepare for 2 witness monologues and cross-examinations where you present 2 different styles of witnesses. For example, one expert witness and one character witness. If you are auditioning as an attorney, you must do all four).

STEP 3: Practice, practice, practice! We want to see what you’re made of, so we recommend running your material a few times and trying to memorize it so we can see you at your best.

STEP 4: Attend your 20-minute tryout! This year’s tryouts will go from Friday, October 1-Sunday, October 3 and will be in-person at the UCLA Anderson School of Management G Building 6th floor Room G6.04 (See map below). Give yourself 10 extra minutes to find the building and the room.
