Call for Judges for Mock Trial

The 2017 NYSBA High School Mock Trial Tournament is underway. The Justice Resource Center, NYC coordinator of this premier law-related competition, is currently recruiting volunteer judges.

More than 90 schools from all five boroughs will meet at one of three courthouses in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens from February 28th to April 26th. Serving as a judge requires a time commitment of a few hours on a weekday evening, and prior knowledge of the case and tournament rules. Information about this year’s case, tournament rules, scoring guidelines and more can be found at

Volunteer judges who are members in good standing of the New York State Bar Association and are also admitted to the New York State Bar for at least two years are eligible for up to three (3) CLE credits for their service. Past volunteers can receive CLE credits once every two years for their service in the Mock Trial Tournament.

Please see the application for complete details. If you are interested in serving as a judge, please complete this application and submit to or fax to (212) 580-5918 no later than February 6, 2017.
