Moot Court Judges Needed for February 3-6

The National Christian Forensics and Communications Association (NCFCA) is the first forensics league in the country to regularly offer the educational opportunities of Moot Court to high school students ages 15-18. We are seeking dedicated individuals with legal backgrounds who are willing to serve as volunteer judges and provide feedback to our students.  Your legal background and experience would be invaluable to our high school students.  Would you consider serving as a Moot Court judge?

Your role will be to listen to two teams of students present oral arguments, question the counsels as they present, and then provide written feedback and rankings. The time commitment for one round of Moot Court is approximately two hours from start to finish. This includes a brief training, the competition round, and time to complete the ballot. All volunteers should plan to read the Moot Court materials which will be forwarded in advance of the event.

The NCFCA will host a tournament in Black Mountain at Ridgecrest Conference Center Monday, February 3 -Thursday, February 6. Students from across the nation will compete for slots to the National Championship to be held in June.  We will have multiple Moot Court rounds throughout the week culminating in our final round on Thursday, February 6. You can access the schedule and sign up to judge here.

“As a former commercial litigator and current Superior Court Judge, I have seen my fair share of great arguments. Yet, I am often impressed by the maturity and oratory skills of these students. Hence, I encourage  you, as my colleague, to assist as a volunteer for at least one of the several moot court competitions across the country.” ~ The Honorable Sheldon Rennie

NCFCA students will be enriched your contribution of time, and we hope that you will be blessed by the experience.

With appreciation,
