High School Mock Trial Volunteers Needed

The Idaho Law Foundation’s Law Related Education Program is gearing up for the 2021 high school mock trial season and needs judges, attorneys, and non-attorney community members to volunteer for judging panels.

The 2021 mock trial competition will be entirely online. Each team will participate in 2-4 preliminary rounds, followed by a state championship competition.

All trial rounds will be conducted online via Zoom. Judges will need:

  • A computer capable of joining a Zoom meeting
  • Access to Zoom from the computer’s camera and microphone
  • A reliable internet connection capable of handling two-way audio/video communication

Competition dates and times include:

  • Preliminary Rounds: Every Tuesday and Thursday from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. MT, starting Thursday, February 4th and running until Tuesday, March 9th.
  • Idaho State Championship: Thursday and Friday, March 18th and 19th with trial rounds beginning at 3:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. MT

You can sign up using our Online Volunteer Registration Form. If you have any questions, contact Carey Shoufler.
