How do tryouts work?
This year, AMTA has created the case of State v. Sutcliffe. Attorneys will give a 4 minute opening statement, and then have the choice of crossing either Kiran Singh (character witness) or Dr. Mel Jelani (expert witness) for 4 minutes. Afterwards, each attorney will choose a prompt and give an argumentative speech for roughly a minute with a couple of follow-up questions by our selection committee.
For witnesses, they can choose to portray Kiran Singh (character witness), D. Weber (expert witness) or Alex Silva (sympathetic witness) for their tryout. Each witness will participate in a 4 minute direct by one of our attorneys; the questions for the direct have been pre-released and each witness is expected to create their own answers. Afterwards, the witness will be crossed for 3 minutes by an opposing attorney. As part of the witness tryout, our selection committee values a well-developed personality for the character.
