Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis’ mock trial team is seeking volunteers to serve as judges at a mock trial invitational next month.
IUPUI Mock Trial will host the invitational during the weekend of Feb. 8-9 at the downtown Indianapolis City-County Building. Organizers of the weekend event are seeking volunteers to judge morning and afternoon sessions both days.
Two rounds will be held each day, including one morning round and one afternoon round. Volunteers do not have to participate in every round.
“Participation as a judge would greatly benefit the competitors who represent 30 teams from across the country,” Sydney Kadinger, an IUPUI Mock Trial coach and 1L at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, wrote in an email to Indiana Lawyer. “Mock Trial at IUPUI depends on local judges, attorneys, (and) law students to make the program a successful growth opportunity for undergraduate students. This tournament is also an opportunity for undergraduate students, interested in law school, to gain exposure to our legal community.”
Those interested in volunteering may sign up here no later than Wednesday. Breakfast and lunch will be provided both days of the competition, and downtown parking will be validated if needed.
