Judge Registration 2021 National Moot Court Competition in Child Welfare & Adoption Law

Thank you for volunteering to judge the 2021 National Moot Court in Child Welfare & Adoption Law Competition.

2021 Topic: "Child Welfare Law in a Pandemic"
February 26 & 27, 2021
Columbus, Ohio

Please complete the registration form below.

Please note: you must be an attorney to judge the moot court competition.

Volunteers are needed to judge the competition rounds on Friday, February 26th at the Ohio Statehouse and Saturday, February 27th at the Ohio Judicial Center. No prior knowledge of family law is required.

Volunteers will be provided with a copy of the problem, competition rules, the bench brief, sample suggested questions, and a sample score sheet in advance. There will also be an information session for volunteers 30 minutes prior to each round. Please plan your arrival time accordingly.

A competition of this size requires approximately 60 judges, so your participation is critical to our success. If you register and are unable to volunteer, please let us know as soon as possible and attempt to find a replacement.

We currently plan to hold the competition in person, as we feel it is an incomparable experience to argue a case in the Ohio Statehouse and the Ohio Supreme Court venues. However, we are also making alternate arrangements to hold the competition online if the circumstances require it.

Thank you for your support!
