Mock Trial Evaluators Needed
Buffalo State will host the fourth annual Great Lakes Mock Trial regional tournament on Saturday and Sunday, February 8 and 9. We will host 24 teams from a variety of colleges and universities and about 200 undergraduate students who are seeking to qualify for a spot in the national American Mock Trial tournament in March. We need tournament evaluators for all four sessions held that weekend (two on Saturday and two on Sunday); faculty members may volunteer for one or more sessions. A legal background is not necessary. Evaluators without legal training will sit as "jurors" and be paired with an attorney who will preside over the trial. Faculty and administrative staff members from all disciplines are welcome. If you can help, please contact Jon Lines, lecturer in the Political Science Department, or Kelly Boos, assistant to the dean of natural and social sciences, for more information or a sign-up sheet.
