All-call for local attorneys to volunteer as scoring judges for the competition!
The Young Lawyer’s Division of the SCBA is proud to organize this year’s 2017 12th Judicial Circuit High School Mock Trial Competition taking place on Saturday morning, March 4, 2017 on the second floor of the Judge Lynn N. Silvertooth Judicial Center. Five local high schools from Sarasota and Manatee Counties are slated to be participating and the students are fervently preparing to present their cases!
We are seeking volunteer scoring judges from both the Sarasota and Manatee legal communities to volunteer during the day of the competition. Each volunteer shift will be approximately two hours. The children will gain the experience of arguing in a real courtroom in front of real judges and attorney juries. This is an experience they will remember forever and we hope you can be a part of it! Please save the date and respond to firstname.lastname@example.org with your:
2. Whether you predominately practice in Sarasota or Manatee County
3. Any mock trial judging experience (none necessary)
4. Any time constraints you have on Saturday, March 4, 2017
Our committee will follow-up as soon as possible. Thank you again to Icard Merrill and Bentley & Bruning for helping to make this event possible. We’re looking forward to a great competition!
