YLD seeks help at Iowa State Fair mock trial event
Share |

The Young Lawyers Division Litigation Committee is seeking volunteers for this year's mock trial event at the Iowa State Fair Aug. 14-15 and Aug. 21-22. Volunteers will receive free admission to the fair and free parking for the days of participation.

The trial-by-jury event engages fair-goers, allowing them to act as jurors during the YLD-led mock trial event. Two-attorney teams have the opportunity to make opening and closing arguments and to examine four witnesses (two opportunities for direct and two for cross exam). Judges and court reporters from across Iowa volunteer to participate in the event each year.

Those interested in putting together teams should email Nile Hicks at nile.hicks@beattielawfirm.com, or Tom Hillers at hillet1@nationwide.com. Questions should also be directed to Hicks and Hillers.
