Volunteer as a Mock Trial Juror and Reap The Benefits of Doing So

The local District High School Mock Trial Competitions are set to commence on January 31, 2023.  Hoping you might please consider serving as a juror or a judge for the competitions which will be going back to live and in-person this year.  The competitions typically start at 6 p.m.

Here is a LINK to my previous article from the Pennsylvania Lawyer magazine that lists the many ways that attorneys can benefit from their participation in the PBA's High School Mock Trial competition as a volunteer Juror or as an Attorney Advisor to a local high school.

Hoping you might please consider volunteering to serve as a Juror and thereby reap the benefits of this participation. 

In these early rounds, more jurors are needed to fill the jury boxes so as to give these students a good sense of a jury trial.  Please do not rely on the thought that others will sign up to volunteer and fill the jury bosxes -- that is not the case as the Mock Trial program here in Lackawanna County and around the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania continually struggles to secure attorney volunteers for the competitions each week.

Please consider registering to volunteer. to help out this excellent program for local high school students who may be considering a career in the law.

And thank you to those attorneys who volunteer year in and year out!
