Volunteers Needed for High School Mock Trial Competitions

Marsha L. Varvil-Weld, the Public Education Coordinator for the State Bar of Wisconsin, is looking for law students to participate in scoring high school mock trial competitions. The competitions help high school students develop research and oral advocacy skills while also learning how a trial works. Law students who would like to participate will be responsible for inputting the scores of each mock trial team into a software system.

This is a great opportunity for law students to network with lawyers and judges that help these events run smoothly. Volunteers will need to have access to a car in order to participate because the mock trials happen all over the Wisconsin area, including Madison, La Crosse, Janesville, and Juneau.

The State Bar will have a training session for volunteers in late January. The first competition will be on February 11th.

If you are interested please contact Marsha L. Varvil-Weld at: mvarvil-weld@wisbar.org or by phone at (608)250-6191 or (608)444-9404, ext.6191.
