The Indiana Bar Foundation is making a final call for volunteers to serve as judges during the 2021 National High School Mock Trial Championship in mid-May.
Evansville is the host city but the competition will be virtual because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. More than 600 students, teachers and legal advisers from across the country will be logging onto Zoom and displaying their courtroom skills through four rounds beginning May 13 and ending May 15.
Attorneys and judges have until Friday to volunteer to be judges. An estimated 23 to 25 mock trials will be conducted simultaneously during the competition and each trial will be overseen by a panel with a presiding judge and three scoring judges.
The volunteer judges will not need to travel. Since the competition is online, attorneys and judges will be able to participate from either their homes or offices.
Members of the legal community who are interested in serving as a judge can sign up here.
