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 Thursday, January 18, 2018 and Tuesday, January 23, 2018 (rescheduled from 1/16/2018). The second round takes place on Tuesday, February 27, 2018 and Thursday, March 6, 2018 (rescheduled due to weather).
The Lawyers Association of Kansas City - Young Lawyers Section is looking for attorneys and law students to serve as judges for the competition, which will take place downtown at the Jackson County Courthouse. The competition begins at 5:30pm 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 in judging and would like to participate, please contact Martin Rice (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Cassandra Robinson (email@example.com).
CLE CREDIT: Missouri will offer self-study CLE credit for judging at the Mock Trial Competition. Attorneys may claim up to 6 hours of self-study CLE/year. LAKC can provide a letter for your records if desired.
