Volunteer judges needed for Mock Trial Program

The 2011 Mock Trial tournament, proudly sponsored again this year by the law firm of Brown Rudnick, begins Monday, Jan. 31. Help us fill open trial dates on our schedule. We expect to have more than 100 attorneys volunteer to participate in the program and we anticipate scheduling more than 200 trials.
