Register to Judge at The Downtown


Join us at The Downtown

  • We’re asking attorneys and law students to judge ONE trial on January 20, 21 or 22. Each trial lasts approximately 2.5 – 3 hours and includes a mandatory 30 minute orientation.
    • Sat, 1/20 – report at 9:30 AM or 2:00 PM
    • Sun, 1/21 – report at 9:30 AM or 2:00 PM
    • Mon, 1/22 – report at 8:15 AM
  • Attorneys can earn 3 non-transitional CLE credits in the category of skills for judging (we can’t offer more than 3 credits, even if you judge multiple trials).
  • The program is hosting approximately 175 students from 18 universities, including Harvard, Yale, Columbia and NYU, among others.
  • The trials are held at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York (500 Pearl Street).
  • Volunteers will either serve as a presiding judge or scoring juror, and will provide students with both written and oral feedback.
  • Complimentary food will be served!
