Law school bound? get (mock) trial/courtroom experience

We are reaching out to you on behalf of the University of Washington’s Women’s Law Caucus. Last year we had many undergraduate students successfully participate (and often get class credit) in the First Year Law Student’s (1Ls) Mock Trial Competition. This is an annual competition in which 1Ls practice being trial attorneys in front of “mock judges.”

Once again, we are making a request for volunteers to act as witnesses in the Mock Trial Competition. Law students will coach the witnesses on their roles and expectations.

This is a great opportunity for undergraduate students interested in law, policy, government, public service, mock trial, debate, speech, and much more to learn about law school, network, and have fun! It is also a great resume builder.

Students interested in participating as a witness must be available to volunteer on the first two nights of the competition: Monday, November 13th and Tuesday, November 14th. The competition begins at 6PM, however, the law students will likely want to prep their witnesses prior to that time.

If their team of law students succeeds, they will continue on in the competition and may request volunteer assistance on the following Wednesday (11/15), Thursday (11/16), and Monday (11/20).

Interested students can sign up to volunteer by Friday, November 3rd, using this link.
