Mock Trial CLE Opportunity

posted Dec 13, 2016, 8:06 AM by Lou Bara

Next month, the nonprofit Empire Mock Trial is partnering with NYU to coordinate a mock trial program for college students at the SDNY. They are looking for attorneys to volunteer as judges or jurors for one trial (approximately 3 hours) on January 21 or 22 at the SDNY. In exchange for their time, attorneys receive up to 3 non-transition CLE credits in the category of skills.

In its 11th season, the Downtown Collegiate Program brings together some of the nation's top mock trial programs, including Harvard, Yale and Columbia, among others.

Register here

You can help teach talented, motivated college students about the law by volunteering just a few hours of your time. In exchange, we'll provide you with free CLE credits.

I've included general information about the program below, and you can register to judge here.

  • Features four preliminary rounds of competition, and you can judge as many or as few as you like—no litigation experience is required.

  • Please feel free to invite a friend or colleague to judge with you at the program.  We can pair you together!

  • We'll serve complimentary food and beverages as a token of our appreciation.

  • Registering takes less than a minute -- you can do so HERE.
