If you wish to volunteer for a judging panel for the 2020 season, you will find the forms on the "Volunteer for the Program" page.
Attorneys who volunteer their time for the 2020 Mock Trial season are eligible to claim CLE credit.
For the first level of competition (Regions, District or State Finals), the following credits are available:
- 1 general CLE hour, 1 Trial Practice hour, 1 Professionalism hour (1,1,0,1)
Attorneys who volunteer at a second level of competition later in the season are eligible to claim an additional 1 general CLE hour and 1 Trial Practice hour of credit (1,1,0,0).
All applications for CLE credit must be made using the Judging Panel CLE form and sent, along with the appropriate fees, to the Mock Trial office by April 15, 2020.
Since all judging panel service takes place during the 2020 calendar year, CLE credits earned during the 2020 HSMT season will appear on the attorney's 2020 CLE transcript.
Attorneys who have signed up for a judging panel will receive a username and password to access the case materials from the District Coordinator for their District in mid-February. (The username and password from Regions works as well). The Bench Brief will be emailed to each panel member separately.
If you have any issues logging in after receiving the username and password, contact the Mock Trial office: firstname.lastname@example.org.
