Volunteer judges needed for Capital University Moot Court Competition
Capital University Law School will host the third annual Child Welfare & Adoption Law Moot Court Competition on March 14-15, 2008 in Columbus, Ohio. This year's problem involves "Children's Best Interest & Multicultural Issues in Adoption" and 20 teams from law schools around the country have registered to compete.
Approximately 100 attorneys are needed to volunteer to judge the competition rounds. Volunteers are needed to judge rounds on Friday, March 14 at the Ohio Statehouse and Saturday, March 15 at the Ohio Judicial Center. You may view the times for the rounds and also register to judge via the competition webpage at: http://www.law.capital.edu/adoption/mootcourt.htm
Volunteers will be provided with a copy of the problem, competition rules, the bench brief, sample suggested questions, and a sample score sheet in advance. There will also be a brief information session for volunteers prior to each round.
