The Young Lawyers Section of the Lawyers Association of Kansas City will be hosting the Missouri State Mock Trial Tournament this year, the weekend of April 1 through April 3. The Lawyers Association of Kansas City is looking for attorneys to serve as judges for the competition, which will take place downtown at the Jackson County Courthouse.
The first round of the tournament will be on Friday, April 1, 2016, beginning at 6:00 pm. The second round and quarterfinal round of the tournament will take place on Saturday, April 2, 2016. The second round will begin Saturday morning at 8:30 am. The quarterfinal round will begin Saturday at 1:00 pm. The semifinal and final round of the tournament will be on Sunday, April 3, 2016. The semifinal will begin Sunday morning at 8:30 am. The final round will begin Sunday at 12:30 pm.
Judges are encouraged to arrive 30 minutes before each round and will be provided breakfast, lunch and/or dinner before each round. Each round is expected to last approximately 2.5 hours or less. This is a great opportunity to see how enthusiastic these high school students are about the law, and can reenergize and remind us why we love what we do!
If, instead, you would like to contribute financially, we would appreciate that as well.
If you are interested and would like to participate, please contact Allison Greenfield at firstname.lastname@example.org or Tyler Scott at Tyler.Scott@huschblackwell.com.
