Judges are needed for this year’s Middle School Regional Mock Trial Competition on Saturday, October 29 at the Linn County Courthouse. (NOTE: New location from last year!) Volunteers are needed for approximately 60 attorney judge slots. No experience is necessary. There will be four rounds: 8 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. You can sign up to judge more than one round. Beverages and snacks will be provided for the attorney volunteers.
There are several reasons why this would be a great year in particular for local lawyers to participate:
- There is not an Iowa Football game on 10/29
- The competition will be at the Linn County Courthouse in real courtrooms for the first time since the flood of 2008
- Judge Bruns is working hard to recruit real judges for every round so any lawyer who agrees to judge will have the opportunity to serve on a panel with a real judge and get some quality face time.
