You Be The Judge - High School Mock Trial Competition

You Be The Judge/Attorney Coach

Volunteer judges and attorney coaches are needed for the upcoming competition season. Please REGISTER ONLINE HERE if you are interested in being a judge for the state competition or an attorney coach for a school participating in the High School Mock Trial Program.

What is the time commitment? Volunteers should allow about two hours/trial. Some volunteers judge one trial and some judge multiple trials, depending on their availability and interest. In preparation for judging, volunteers are expected to read through the case materials and be prepared to either preside or score at the trial.

Below are some helpful items for volunteer judges to review in advance of the competition:
