Mock Trial Competition Seeking Judges

The John S. Bradway Philadelphia High School Mock Trial Competition, which is run by Temple University Beasley School of Law and the Young Lawyers Division of the Philadelphia Bar Association, is seeking volunteers to serve as judges for the second, third and fourth rounds of this year's competition.

Each spring, students from 50 public, private and parochial schools compete in a simplified mock trial for the City Mock Trial Championship. The students are given the opportunity to play the roles of attorneys and witnesses in a fictitious criminal or civil case, focusing on real legal issues.

Go to the Young Lawyers Division page on the Bar Association's Web site to fill out the volunteer form.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact Eleanora.Jones@Temple.edu or Roberta.West@Temple.edu or by phone at 215-204-1887.
