Indiana High School Mock Trial Judge Volunteers Needed

The Indiana High School Mock Trial Regional competitions are in need of volunteer judges to preside over and score the mock trials presented by high school teams from all over Indiana in February. These competitions will culminate with the Indiana State Competition in March, when volunteer judges are also needed.
