Seeking Attorney-Judges for Duke’s Mock Trial Competition, 2/26 or 2/27

February 7, 2022

My name is Marino Leone, and I am a 2L member of the Duke Law Mock Trial Board. I am reaching out to see if you would be interested in serving as judges in our annual Twiggs-Beskind Mock Trial Tournament. It would be a great opportunity for Duke Law students to connect with the NCBA while also getting direct feedback from practicing attorneys. 

For some background, the Twiggs-Beskind Tournament is an annual competition for Duke Law students interested in practicing oral trial advocacy and joining the Mock Trial Board. This year, the Tournament will take place Saturday, February 26th – Sunday, February 27th, and we are looking for attorneys to judge one round. One round will take no more than three hours. We are currently planning to hold the Tournament at the Durham County Courthouse, COVID-19 permitting. In advance of the Tournament, we will provide more information on the case problem and logistics.

If you might be interested in judging or if we can answer any questions, please let me know. I look forward to hearing from you and thank you for your consideration!
