Volunteer Judges Needed

The Judicial Division is seeking judge volunteers for an upcoming program with the Section of Litigation on March 31.  The program will consist of a panel on oral and written motions, followed by young lawyers arguing real cases in front of judges.  We are seeking judge volunteers for the oral arguments presentations by the young lawyers.  The time slots will be 40 minute long (consisting of 10-12 minutes for each side, a three minute reply, and a critique from the judge), and will run from 1:10 – 5:20 pm.  Judges may hear one argument, or multiple arguments. 

Judges will also be asked to submit briefs/response/reply from their dockets so they will be hearing the argument on a case that they have either heard oral argument on or might not have granted oral argument on.  The lawyers who sign up will get to pick the type of case they wish to argue.

If you are interested in volunteering please contact Judge J. Michelle Childs.
