High School Mock Trial Students Need Your Support - Sign Up To Judge One or More Rounds of the Local Competition!
The MBA Young Lawyers Division is once again sponsoring the 2013 Memphis and Shelby County High School Mock Trial Competition next month. We are still looking for attorneys and judges to volunteer to judge rounds of the Competition on February 11-13, 18, and 19. Rounds will be held at the Shelby County Courthouse at 140 Adams Avenue in downtown Memphis beginning at 5:30pm each night of the Competition. This year's problem involves a criminal case where the State has accused an auto mechanic of intentionally loosening the connections on a vehicle belonging to his investment broker who had lost the defendant's company's pension knowing that the vehicle would fail to function and ultimately crash. If you are interested in assisting with the competition or would like more information, please contact Nicole Grida at email@example.com or Jonathan Nelson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
