The Case Western Reserve University School of Law will host the Texas Young Lawyers Association National Trial Competition Feb. 7-9 at the Cuyahoga County Courthouse.
The National Trial Competition (NTC) is one of the most prestigious law school mock trial competitions in the nation, and was created to stimulate law student interest in developing trial advocacy skills.
This year, more than 300 mock trial teams will compete at regional competitions, and the top two teams from each of the regions will advance to the 39th annual national competition. This regional competition includes law schools throughout Ohio and Michigan, and is co-sponsored by Cleveland-Marshall College of Law.
Volunteers are invaluable to the success of the regional competition. By volunteering their time, volunteers will help the law student competitors to experience many aspects of a real trial. Preparation time is minimal for all volunteer positions.
Consider volunteering time for one or multiple rounds. Each round will last approximately three hours, and preparation before the competition requires a simple familiarity with the problem that is sent out in late January. To volunteer, click on the appropriate link:
