Our competitions rely on volunteer judges, without whom we could not provide these valuable experiences to the students. This is a great opportunity for practitioners from the community to assist the next generation of attorneys in gaining valuable experience and knowledge. In turn, the BOA provides the volunteer judges with thanks, CLE credits, and dinner. The number of CLE credits varies between 3.6 and 4.8 hours per night judged, depending on the time commitment of each round of competition. This is a great way to earn CLE credit as you receive credit for each night of participation.
We mail out registration packets to all the volunteers in our database before each competition. If you are not on our mailing list and would like to be included, please email Judging Directors :

Ethics CLE credit opportunity! Mizzou Law Board of Advocates is looking for volunteers to serve as judges in the 2015 Client Counseling Competition, which will take place Monday, October 12th, through Wednesday, October 14th. The Client Counseling Competition simulates an initial legal consultation between two attorneys and a prospective client. Two-member teams of students will act as attorneys while interviewing the client and provide a preliminary assessment of the client’s case. The assessment explains the attorneys’ understanding of the client’s legal position and provides the client with possible courses of action.
Judging is a great way to earn ethics CLE credit! If you are interested in serving as a judge for the competition, please visit the following link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c094aa4a82aa2fd0-client
