J. Reuben Clark Law School – Mock Trial Witnesses Needed 2018/2019

Ali Poulson, a second year student at the J. Reuben Clark Law School of BYU reached out to the theatre and media arts department this week. In her letter she outlined the following:

I am contacting you on behalf of our Trial Advocacy team. Our Trial Advocacy team hosts two school competitions per year, and we are looking for people who would like to volunteer to act as witnesses in mock trials for our school competition. The tentative dates for these competitions are: October 18-20&22, 2018 and January 17-20, 2019. 

The reason we are reaching out to the Theatre and Media Arts department is because I have an undergraduate degree in musical theatre and I thought that it would have been something of interest to me when I was a theatre student. I have created a Google Form through which students can volunteer for this opportunity: https://goo.gl/forms/1y4TNxY8EfWvAZNJ2

If you are interested, please volunteer by signing up via the link above!
