Fresno State's 13-person mock trial team will face off against the top teams in the nation next month at the National Championship Competition in Orlando, Fla.
It's the first time in the team's nine-year history that it has qualified for the contest.
Coach Gordon Park said the team got a bid at the Opening Round Championship Series Tournament in Newport Beach this month to secure its spot at the national competition.
"I could not be more proud of this team and our future lawyers," he said in a statement.
