Volunteer Judges Sought for UNH Mock Trial

New Hampshire will host its 9th Annual Intercollegiate Mock Trial Invitational Tournament for undergraduates during the weekend of Oct. 28-29 at UNH's campus in Durham.

The tournament needs attorneys willing to serve as judges, presiding over mock trial rounds and evaluating students' performances. Attorneys do not need to be sitting judges, active litigators, or familiar with college mock trial to participate. Judges will receive a brief training that will equip them for the task. For each day, there will be one morning and one afternoon trial session.

To sign up as a judge for one or more trial sessions, or should you have any questions, please contact Jacob Marvelley.
