Moot Court Judge
Billiken Barrister Invitational Tournament: Lawyers are needed to serve as volunteer judges for the Billiken Barrister Invitational Tournament mock trial program held on SLU's campus. Thirty-two teams of 8-10 undergraduate, pre-law students from colleges across the U.S. compete against each other for top honors in this program. Volunteer judges work with volunteer SLU law students to evaluate the competing teams. Volunteers are asked to serve in 3-hour blocks of time. The tournament takes place each fall. Self-study CLE credit is available; program CLE credit is possible. For more information, contact Kelley McConttrell or call at 314.977.3695.
