Michigan Mock Trial Volunteer Sign Up 2023

Thank you in advance for contributing to the development of young legal minds. This form serves to sign up as a volunteer for MCCE's regional and state final events.

At this time, MCCE will host one dedicated virtual regional event along with in-person regionals. Our hope is the dedicated virtual event will permit more access to more schools across the state and/or those who may have difficulty traveling to an in person event. 

Please note that these intentions may need to switch based on courthouse and courtroom availability. MCCE provides these opportunities at the discretion of the courthouses. 

Stay tuned for reception and celebration information as well!

Thank you for your continued commitment to your civic communities. We look forward to seeing you this season!

I understand I will need to attend an orientation prior to volunteering to ensure I understand what is expected for the virtual hearings. (This isn't different from year's past - just that there will be more options to attend an orientation in advance of the hearing day.)
