Volunteers Needed: Serve as a Mock Trial attorney coach

Thursday, Dec. 20, 2018

mocktrialMock Trial Central is looking for attorney coaches in the 2019 Massachusetts Bar Association Mock Trial Competition.

Using a hypothetical criminal case developed by the MBA's Mock Trial Committee, high school students have already started preparing for their three preliminary round trials. 

The following schools are still in need of an attorney coach:

  • Atlantis Charter School, Fall River
  • Canton High School
  • Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High School, North Dighton
  • Old Rochester Regional High School, Mattapoisett
If you would like to volunteer as an attorney coach for any of the above listed schools, we will contact the school and provide them with your information. The time commitment is based on both your schedules and those of the teachers, but the trials begin at the end of January and run through the end of March, depending on the success of the individual teams. The schools may need your assistance at any time between now and the end of the season to help prepare for upcoming trials.

If you are unable to volunteer as an attorney coach for Mock Trial, we are also recruiting attorneys to act as judges during the tournament. 

If you are interested in participating as an attorney coach or a judge, please contact Mock Trial Central at (617) 338-0570, or mocktrial@massbar.org.
