It’s that time of year. The 2019 High School Mock Trial Competition gets started on January 22, 2019
I am again looking for trial attorneys to judge this year’s competition. The High School Mock Trial Competition is a yearly competition for almost every high school in the State. A record number (almost 30) high schools from Montgomery County will be participating this year. Each school has four trials and the teams that do the best advance to the playoffs. The winner of our Montgomery County Competition will then compete against the winner from the Frederick County Competition. The winner of that trial (the 6th Circuit Winner) will then move on to face the winners from each of the remaining circuits throughout the State.
Each trial is about two hours long. Each school gives an opening and closing argument and each school will call three different witnesses. For those that have never judged the competition before, the students are terrific and it is a very short commitment. An hour or two to review the material before the trial and two hours to judge the competition.
This also counts for your PRO BONO COMMITMENT to the State.
The trials are held in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County beginning at 6 p.m. and ending at 8 p.m.
The dates for the trials are as follows:
January 24th, 29th, 30th and 31st. February 5th, 6th, 12th, 13th.
If you are interested in judging this year, please contact Brad Bernstein at 301-517-4811 or Casey Cirner at 301-517-4817
