Trial Courtroom Project

print thisprint this


The Trial Courtroom at C|M|LAW is a technology-enhanced simulation-based learning environment for law students, legal professionals, and mock trial opportunities. This state-of-the-art facility, scheduled for grand opening on April 21, 2011, will enable the school to prepare Cleveland-Marshall law students to become outstanding trial lawyers. The College of Law will also make the trial courtroom available to practicing lawyers and active judges for mock trial and training exercises. The Courtroom will also ultimately provide the opportunity to create a revenue stream for the College of Law via rentals by legal professionals and other outside organizations. Consistent with our mission, it will be an educational and community resource for engaged, practical learning and professional development.

Judicial Portraits

Portraits of Cleveland-Marshall Alumni Judges will be displayed in the courtroom and serve as a tribute to the law school’s rich and long-standing history in producing a majority of the judicial leadership in the City of Cleveland, and in many other cities around the country.


The Trial Courtroom is designed to look and function exactly like a Federal Courtroom. The floorplan covers 2400 square feet, with availability for overflow participation in the adjacent Faculty Presentation Room, which is also equipped with the latest electronic and digital presentation technology.
