January 18-19th, 2020 – Mid-Missouri Mock Trial Invitational Tournament

Columbia College and the Board of Advocates at the University of Missouri-Columbia Law School will host the Mid-Missouri Mock Trial Invitational tournament on Saturday, January 18 through Sunday January 19, 2019. We began hosting AMTA events in 1999 and we look forward to our 22nd year of hosting. This is a four round, two-day tournament which is limited to 28 teams.

The tournament hosts need attorneys to serve as Judges for this four round Tournament, which serves as a competitive forum for teams to earn bids to the National Championship tournament. Judges will score a printed ballot with established criteria and rule on evidentiary objections governed by an evidence code similar to the Federal Rules of Evidence. There are 28 teams from Colleges in the region attending this event. This year’s case is a criminal case, with a fact pattern involving homicide. Judges are needed for any and all of the rounds, which begin Saturday at 9:00am and 2:00pm and 8:30 am and 1 pm on Sunday.

Food and ample non- alcoholic beverages will be provided. Those interested in Judging or in need of further information may contact Professor Barry Langford at Columbia College brlangford@ccis.edu (573-875-7484).
