Cal Mock Trial is UC Berkeley’s Official Mock Trial Team. Since its founding in 1999, Cal Mock Trial has been a nationally ranked program and has consistently competed at the top levels of collegiate mock trial. Mock Trial is a team-based speech competition that combines elements of law, speech, debate, and theatre. As a simulation of trial advocacy, Mock Trial also includes simulations of courtroom procedure and technique that reflect a real trial.
Cal Mock Trial is seeking attorneys to serve as judges for the following Intercollegiate Mock Trial Invitationals on the UC Berkeley campus:
- The 3rd Annual Average American Mock Trial Invitational (AAMTI), November 5 – 6, 2016
- The 1st atypiCAL Invitational, January 28 – 29, 2017
There is no expectation or requirement for judges to prepare in any manner prior to the tournament. There will be a judges’ orientation before every round, and tournament staff will be available to answer any questions that you may have.
