The American Mock Trial Association was founded in 1985 by Dean Richard Calkins of Drake Law School. AMTA serves as the governing body for intercollegiate mock trial competition. Through engaging in trial simulations in competition with teams from other institutions, students develop critical thinking and public speaking skills, as well as a knowledge of legal practices and procedures. AMTA sponsors regional and national-level competitions, as well as providing interesting and complex case materials for academic use.
The Rulebook contains all rules and policies that govern AMTA competitions, the competition structure, board membership, sanction policies, and membership requirements among other things. The Rulebook is traditionally updated semi-annually following the AMTA Board of Directors Meeting (July) and the AMTA Mid-Year Meeting (November).
