Fairhaven College is looking for volunteer judges for upcoming mock trials for FAIR311 U.S. Legal Systems on December 5 and 7 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:20 a.m. Each mock trial will be one hour long and there will be a total of four mock trials consisting of two criminal trials and two civil trials.

We are looking for a minimum of four attorneys or at least one judge for each mock trial. However, we welcome additional volunteer judges. A volunteer judge may judge one or more mock trials depending on their availability. 

A minimum commitment consists of reviewing the mock trial packet(s) (one for civil and one for criminal) that will be provided, attending at least one 1-hour mock trial on December 5 and/or 7, completing student evaluation forms for each participant, and providing a few minutes of feedback to students right after their mock trials.
