Volunteer Jurors

Volunteer jurors help create a meaningful final event for participants in Discovering Justice’s Mock Trial Program. Jurors support our students’ and volunteers’ semester-long efforts by filling the jury box, listening to arguments, determining the case with the guidance of a real judge, and providing feedback. A brief reception follows the Mock Trial in which attendees come together to celebrate the end of the program. These events are a great opportunity for both first-time jurors to see our program action and for returning jurors to deepen their connection to Discovering Justice.

Register here to support our Mock Trial teams as a volunteer juror. Find event details by municipality below.
