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 4.8 and 6 hrs 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 complete the form below.
4.8 CLE credits available per night! The competition will run Tuesday, January 29th through Thursday, January 31st.
Each round will begin at 7:00 and end at approximately 10:00. There will be an informational meeting and dinner provided at 6:30. Unlike previous competitions, where you could volunteer for only one of the several rounds each evening, this competition consists of one round in each room every night, so we will therefore need you for the entire evening.
If you are able to judge, or you know someone who would be willing to participate, please contact the Board of Advocates by January 16th. Also, please include a phone number that you can be reached by as well. We greatly appreciate your assistance!
