12th Annual Justice Louis D. Brandeis Mock Trial Invitational Tournament

The Brandeis University Mock Trial Association (BUMTA), Brandeis University’s undergraduate Mock Trial organization, is looking for local attorney and legal experts to volunteer as Judges for their Annual Justice Louis D. Brandeis Invitational Tournament. BUMTA hosts the tournament every year as practice for some of the strongest local Mock Trial teams as they prepare for sanctioned Mock Trial competition in February 2018.

The tournament consists of four Rounds, which will take place on Saturday, November 18th and Sunday, November 19th at the Brandeis University campus in Waltham, Massachusetts. Judges often choose to volunteer for one or more of the Rounds during the weekend.

No previous trial or Mock Trial experience is necessary to be a Judge; we provide all of the materials and information you need. As a Judge, your job is to objectively score the performance of two competing teams, possibly preside over the trial, hear objections and, most significantly, provide teams with feedback on their strategies and performances. Your experience and input is extremely valuable to competing teams, all of whom benefit from your advice, expertise, and suggestions as they prepare for upcoming Regional and National rounds of competition next spring.

Please contact Tournament Director Cameron Hunt (cwhunt@brandeis.edu)or Scott Halper (shalpe8789@brandeis.edu), who will be able to provide further information for the weekend, if you are interested and able to volunteer as a Judge. Thank you for your time!
