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 Friday, January 25 through Sunday January 27, 2019. We began hosting AMTA events in 1999 and we look forward to our 21st year of hosting. This is a four round, three-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 civil case, with a fact pattern involving negligence. Judges are needed for any and all of the rounds, which are as follows:
Round 1 – Friday, January 25, beginning at 6:00 p.m.
Round 2 – Saturday, January 26, beginning at 9:00 a.m.
Round 3 – Saturday, January 26, beginning at 2:00 p.m.
Round 4 – Sunday, January 26, beginning at 9:30 a.m.
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 via email [firstname.lastname@example.org] or call (573-875-7484).
