The existence and success of oral advocacy competitions at BCLS depend on the efforts and enthusiasm of the attorneys who volunteer to judge each round of the competitions. Student who participate in extra-curricular competitions take their involvement very seriously. Students learn valuable skills by practicing and receiving feedback from judges.
The BSA welcomes attorneys who would like to judge any of the annual competitions: the 1L Negotiation Competition, the 1L Client Counseling Competition, the 2L Grimes Moot Court Competition, and the 3L Mock Trial Competition. While the duties of serving as a judge vary depending on the specific competition, each requires the alumni judge to become generally familiar with the problem and then observing and judging an evening of competition at the law school campus in Newton, Massachusetts.
Many judges over the years have found it rewarding to judge competitions. If you are able to give an evening of your time (or more!), the BSA would love to hear from you!
