Intra-School Mock Trial Competition

The Board of Advocates is excited to announce its annual Intra-School Mock Trial Competition! We will be hosting an informational meeting on Monday, February 8 at 1 pm in room 6. The actual competition will take place February 22nd – 25th. This is the last all-school competition BOA will host. Teams will consist of four (4) members. No more than two (2) of those members can be a member that has competed in the past on either Mizzou Law’s competitive trial teams (Thurgood, TYLA, Labor and Employment, or AG’s Cup) or arbitration team. If your team has limited experience, you have the option to be assigned a 3L who will serve as mentor/coach. If you do not have a team in mind, you can sign up as an individual and will be placed with other individuals who are also looking for a team to join. Sign-ups will be posted today, February 1st outside the BOA office. Make sure you denote whether you opt in for a mentor/coach or not. Space is limited as we only have room for 12 teams. The problem is a criminal case and can be found attached to this email. Questions can be answered either by emailing BOA directly, or at the info meeting. Find the case here:...

Client Counseling Competition

  The 2015 Client Counseling competition will be held from October 12-14. If you are interested in participating, please sign up outside of the BOA office. Even if you do not have a partner, sign up individually and BOA will pair you with someone. The competition is limited to the first 15 teams that sign up.   Some things about the Competition: · It’s the LAST competition of the semester!! · It’s very easy and requires little to no prep work. · A great way to earn BOA points. · If you play the role of the client, you get free dinner! The Client Counseling Competition simulates the moment a potential client walks into your law firm and has a legal problem for you to address. This competition requires no legal knowledge in a certain area. Two-member teams of students acting as attorneys interview the client and provide a preliminary assessment of the client’s case. BOA is in need of volunteers to play the role of clients and bailiffs (BOA points included). Students interested in volunteering as either a client or bailiff can sign up outside the BOA office. There will be more information about the competition at the Informational Meeting on Monday, October, 5th at 1pm in Room 5. We hope to see you...
