    The Delaware High School Mock Trial Competition is an annual, two day competition, hosting 400 of Delaware's brightest high school students. The students act out a court case and debate at the highest level in a real courtroom setting.

    We need volunteers to be "runners" (no running involved - deliver scores from the deliberation room to event judges' room) and courtroom bailiffs (escort jury to/from the courtroom and announcing the presiding judge). Both positions are important, but fun and easy to do. Light breakfast and lunch are provided.

    Members may sign up for all 4 or individual sessions.
