Event description

Description

There are four rounds (trials) to sign up for. There are two rounds on Friday and two rounds on Saturday. An orientation will be given to all volunteers before each round. Confirmation emails will be sent closer to tournament date. Indicate by checking which round(s) you would like to participate in below. Each round is approximately 2.5 hours and orientation.breakfast/lunch served.

We have three roles we need volunteers:

ROLE 1: Presiding Judge: This volunteer role is a current or retired Colorado Judge or an expert mock trial volunteer. During the competition the presiding judge acts as the voice of the panel, controls the conduct of the courtroom and trial participants, and supervises the time constraints imposed by the rules of competition. The presiding judge rules on motions and objections based on the rules of evidence. The presiding judge does not announce a verdict on the legal merits of the case, but in all other respects conducts the trial as if it were a real trial.

ROLE 2: Scoring Panelist: Three attorneys, paralegals or community members comprise the scoring panel. The score is based on presentation and not on the legal merits of the team's case. A scoresheet is completed.

ROLE 3: Courtroom Monitor: This individual normally is a member of the public, employed at the courthouse, or any other volunteer that doesn’t wish to score or judge a round. This is a very important role for a smooth tournament overall.
