A Volunteer opportunity from our friends at UCI
I hope you are doing well today. I'm writing on behalf of UCI Mock Trial asking if you would be willing to forward this message to your associates at TMBA.
We are very much in need of volunteer judges for our collegiate in-person mock trial tournament hosted by UC Irvine at our campus on November 12th-13th. This event hosts teams from all over the area!
It would mean a lot to the students to have real attorneys judge their rounds. Most of these students are on the path to law school and are looking to be attorneys one day. Your expertise and knowledge would be greatly appreciated if you judged.

The rounds: The trials are under three hours long and require zero preparation. On both days there will be a morning round (with check-in starting at 8 am and the trial ending at 12 pm) and an afternoon round (with check-in starting at 1 pm and the trial ending at 5 pm). You can judge for as many or as few trials as you would like.
The case: This year's case is a civil suit of negligence against a company that employed a pilot that crashed his airplane into a mountain with a passenger, with no survivors. The witnesses and evidence vary across each round makes each trial unique and interesting.
How judging works: We will host a brief judge training session before each round that will supply you with any materials you may need and also explain how the ballots work.
Signing up: If you would be willing to help us out as a judge, we would really appreciate it. We are very much in need of volunteers for the success of the tournament and the students involved.

Also, if you have any colleagues who might be interested in judging, please feel free to share our information with them!
Thank you for your time!
