National Trial Competition (NTC)


The Texas Young Lawyers Association's (TYLA) National Trial Competition was established in 1975 to encourage and strengthen students' advocacy skills through quality competition and valuable interaction with members of the bench and bar. The competition is designed to expose law students to the nature of trial practice and to serve as a supplement to their education. The top 28 teams out of over 300 in the Regional Competitions advance to the National Finals.
