Volunteers needed to serve as witnesses for the Texas Young Lawyers National Trial Competition in Austin at the Capitol on Thursday 3/27 and Friday 3/28!

There are several volunteer opportunities for three preliminary championship mock trial rounds scheduled at the Capitol Extension in Austin, as follows:

(1) Round 1: 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 27, 2014;

(2) Round 2: 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 27, 2014; and

(3) Round 3: 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Friday, March 28, 2014.

Each mock trial requires the testimony of four "witnesses." TYLA will assign each student a particular character and send the background information and instructions before the competition. At the trial, the witnesses will testify based on the background information in response to questioning from the student attorneys.
