October+November/Seattle - UW Law Mock Trial Competitions

On behalf of the Moot Court Honor Board at the University of Washington School of Law, I am pleased to invite you to participate as a judge in our two fall mock trial competitions. The first of these competitions is the 2017 PWRFL 2L/3L Mock Trial Competition, which will take place Monday, October 16th through Thursday, October 19th.  The second competition is the 2017 1L Mock Trial Competition, scheduled for Monday, November 13th through Thursday, November 16th.  More information about each competition, including a complete schedule for the days volunteer judges are needed may be found at the bottom of this email.

We welcome attorneys from all practice areas to participate. Volunteer judges are invaluable to the continued success of MCHB and the in-house competition program. As a judge, you will provide valuable feedback and evaluate the participants’ performance. For your service as a judge you will receive:
-          3 free CLE credits and 2.5 credits for each additional night judged*
-          Free parking
-          Dinner

You may register to serve as a judge for both competitions using this online sign-up sheet.

If you are unable to serve as a judge for this competition, but would like to receive invitations to judge future competitions, please let us know via the sign-up sheet. Questions can be sent tojudges@uw.edu

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

Sincerely,
CaroLea Casas
Vice President of Judges

*Each round of competition entails a time commitment of substantive work (training, listening to competition rounds, grading, and delivering feedback) of approximately 3 to 3.5 hours. Judges will receive 0.5 credits for training activity per competition and 2.5 CLE credits for each round judged. Please note that WSBA no longer places a limit on CLE credits from judging MCHB competitions.
