Mock trial judges needed for new tournament in Indianapolis

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

Indiana University Bloomington Mock Trial organization is seeking practicing attorneys as volunteers for its first tournament, the Hoosier Hoedown, in Indianapolis. The tournament is Jan. 26 and 27 in the Indianapolis City-County Building.

Two rounds will be held Saturday – one at 10 a.m. and one at 2:30 p.m. and two on Sunday – one at 9 a.m. and one at 1:30 p.m. For every courtroom, two judges are needed. The organization estimates that it will need 35 judges per round. It will provide breakfast and lunch for all judges, and refreshments throughout the day. Judges may volunteer for as many rounds as they like.

The role of the judge is to critique the competitors on their presence, use of evidence and overall legal understanding.

Indiana University Bloomington Mock Trial is working to create a name for the school and its participants within the American Mock Trial Association.

Closing festivities are at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law on Jan. 27.

To volunteer, email hoosiermock@gmail.com or Lindsay Whirley at lwhirley@indiana.edu or call Whirley at 765-993-6244. Visit http://www.iumock.com for more information.
