Earn 3 CLE credits for FREE while taking part in a great cause!
Empire Mock Trial
is short on
volunteers – particularly on Sunday, Nov. 13. Attorneys volunteer
just a few hours of time to evaluate the students on the quality
of their legal arguments and trial advocacy skills. All
participating attorneys earn 3 free CLE credits. If there is a group which would like to judge a round together,
please indicate that on the registration form (link below).
This will be the
nonprofit Empire’s tenth annual “World
Championship” mock trial program on November 12-13 at the federal
court in Brooklyn. Over 650 talented high school students
from across the globe are traveling to the Big Apple and they need
you to serve as their mock judges and jurors but real life
educators! By volunteering just a few hours of your time, you can
make a meaningful impact in these young people’s lives while
earning CLE credit in the process. It’s a win-win for everyone!
