You be the Judge!
[Click Here for Schedule]
Every year, 700 attorneys and judges are needed to act as competition judges in the MSBA High School Mock Trial Program.
- When and where are judging opportunities available? Trials are held in courthouses across the state. Trials held in the Metro area are during evening hours and greater Minnesota trials are held during regular business hours.
The competition begins with the first round of trials the week of January 9th and concludes after five rounds of regional play with the State Tournament in March 2017.
- 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.
To volunteer, contact Kim Basting, (612) 278-6306.
