Feb 2016/Seattle: Moot Court

n behalf of the Moot Court Honor Board at the University of Washington School of Law, we would like to inform you about two opportunities to participate as a judge in upcoming Moot Court competitions. 

Judson Falknor Appellate Advocacy Competition: Monday, January 25, 2016 à February 1, 2016;

Contract Negotiation Competition:  Monday, February 8, 2016 à Monday, February 15, 2016

More information about the competitions and complete schedules may be found at the bottom of this email. 

We welcome attorneys from all practice areas to participate.
As a judge, you will provide feedback and evaluate the participants’ performance.
For your service as a judge:
·       You may receive 3 free CLE credits per competition or, 5.5 credits for judging two nights; *
·       Free parking; and 
·       Dinner 

We will provide you with details regarding the problem and fact pattern about a week in advance of the competition. 

Judging for a University of Washington law school competition is an opportunity to provide law students with valuable feedback on their trial advocacy skills. Volunteer judges are also invaluable to the continued success of the Moot Court Honor Board and the in-house competition program.      

You may REGISTER to serve as a judge using the following online sign-up sheet (Note that these sign-up sheets cover the preliminary rounds through the semifinal round. Final round judges are recruited on an individual basis.) 



If you are unable to serve as a judge for this competition, but would like to receive invitations to judge future competitions (or would like to be removed from our judge database), please let us know via the sign-up sheet. Questions regarding the competition can be sent to judges@uw.edu.  

Thank you in advance for your support. We hope to see you at the competitions.

Sincerely,
Miriam Ricanne Swedlow
Vice President of Judges
UW Moot Court Honor Board
