For the first time, Indiana will host the 2013 National High School Mock Trial Championship May 9-11, 2013, in downtown Indianapolis. High school mock trial teams, coaches and judges from all over the country will converge on Indianapolis, and attorneys and judges are needed to fill approximately 400 judge positions.
If you have judged mock trial in the past, you know these students are capable of great performances; the caliber of the teams at the national level is truly top notch! Non-lawyer volunteers are also needed to fill administrative capacities, such as court room liaisons, hospitality volunteers, and others.
Also, for the first time, attorneys who volunteer to judge will be eligible to earn free CLE credits. A one-hour educational program will be offered and will be available for viewing via recording, which will earn one hour of CLE credit. Thereafter, any attorney who has viewed the program will be eligible for one additional hour of CLE credit for each round judged, for a total possible 5 hours of free CLE.
A competition of this magnitude cannot be hosted without help from the legal community, so your participation would be greatly appreciated by the organizers. To register as a volunteer, go to www.inmocktrial.org/RS/WelcomeMainPage.php. Additional details will follow regarding case materials and competition rules.
