Volunteers

More than 400 volunteers are needed to help make the 2020 NHSMTC a success. Can we count on you to help?
We’re looking for lawyers, legal professionals and community members to score rounds of competition, usher competitors through our courthouses, serve as room liaisons, and help coordinate team registrations and events.

JUDGING VOLUNTEERS
There will be 23 to 25 trials happening simultaneously and each trial will be overseen by a panel including a Presiding Judge and three Scoring Jurors, who are attorneys and judges. Please consider judging for more than one round of competition, if your schedule permits.

EVENT VOLUNTEERS
Event Volunteers will serve a vital role in the success of our competition. We need people to help with registration, during events, and while teams are traveling to and from the courthouses. We also need people willing to serve as Courtroom Liaisons who will be assigned to judging panels and will ensure that score sheets are collected and returned to Competition Staff.

If you are interested in being a volunteer for the 2020 NHSMTC, please complete this form online.
