  • We’re asking attorneys or law students to judge one 2-3 hour trial on September 23, 24, or 25 (though you can judge more than one, if you’d like). Each trial also includes a 30 minute orientation.
    • Sat, 9/23 – report at 9:30 AM or 2:15 PM
    • Sun, 9/24 – report at 9:30 AM or 2:15 PM
    • Mon, 9/25 – report at 8 AM
  • The program is hosting 300 students from 13 states, including 4 teams from Georgia.
  • The trials are held at Clayton County Superior Court (click to see courthouse location).
  • You will serve as a presiding judge or scoring juror; volunteers provide students with both written and oral feedback.
  • All trials start with a motion to suppress; the presiding judge questions the students during their oral argument.
  • Complimentary food will be served!

    Role Preference

    You can volunteer as a juror or presiding judge. We typically have more attorneys request to preside over trials than we have spots available. Hence, we may let one judge preside over the pre-trial motion and let another preside over the trial portion. With that in mind, please answer the following questions:
