Each 1L student must serve as a juror at one of the final trials of the upperclassmen in a Trial Practice course or as a bailiff/timekeeper for a pre-approved mock trial competition. Through either experience, first year students are given an opportunity to observe a full-length trial. Jurors have the added opportunity to render a verdict.

Opportunities to fulfill this requirement will be posted as they become available.
