|U of I’s 2014 Cornshucker Challenge in need of attorney-judges|
The University of Iowa Mock Trial Program has hosted a tournament called the Cornshucker Challenge every year for the past 14 years. To run this tournament, the organizers rely on local volunteers to help judge the rounds.
This year, the tournament will be held on the University of Iowa campus Dec. 6-7. The event is coming up soon, yet the group is still in need of judges. Each day of the competition there will be two rounds, one beginning at 9:30 a.m. and the other at 2:30 p.m. with a judges’ meeting a half an hour before each round to explain judging expectations.
The University of Iowa was one of the founding institutions for the American Mock Trial Association (AMTA). It participated in the first ever National Championship Competition in Des Moines in 1985. The University of Iowa Mock Trial Club was founded in 1991, six years after the Hawkeyes began competing in AMTA.
