Invitation to Judge at the Duke University 2019 Tobacco Road Invitational Mock Trial Tournament

September 26, 2019

My name is Emil Zakarian, and I am contacting you on behalf of Duke University’s Mock Trial team. We are an undergraduate program that fosters the budding legal community and encourages a wide range of students to pursue a career in law.

Each year we invite the top college mock trial programs from around the country to compete at a tournament in Durham. We need judges to help out at this tournament, and we would be thrilled if you could volunteer your time. The tournament will be Saturday, November 2nd and Sunday, November 3rd at the Durham Country Courthouse. Each day comprises of two rounds, and each round is about three hours long. We would be extremely grateful if you could judge even just one round. Your legal expertise would guarantee that our competitors receive the best feedback possible and would help shape the next generation of lawyers across the country. 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I am happy to speak on the phone as well. My number is 404-917-7837. Click here to learn more.

Thank you so much, and I hope you have a great year.
