It is time again for the Kansas City division of the high school Missouri Mock Trial Competition. The first round of competition takes place on Tuesday, January 17th and Thursday, January 19th. The second round takes place on Tuesday, February 21st and Thursday, February 23rd. The Lawyers Association of Kansas City - Young Lawyers Section and the KCMBA are looking for attorneys to serve as judges for the competition, which will take place downtown at the Jackson County Courthouse. The competition begins at 6pm each night and will wrap up by 9pm (dinner will be provided). Judges are asked to arrive at the courthouse by 5:30pm. This is a great opportunity to see how enthusiastic these high school students are about the law, and can reenergize and remind us why we love what we do!
If you are interested and would like to participate, please contact Amy Luck at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can use your help for as few or as many nights as you are available.
We are proud to be hosting the state competition this year as well, on Friday through Sunday, March 30th through April 1st. If you are not able to volunteer for the January or February rounds, we would greatly appreciate your participation in March/April.
