b. Additional students’ and adults’ costs will not be covered by the New York Bar Foundation grant or the LYC Program.

Additional students and adults attending the State Finals may participate in organized meal functions but will be responsible for paying for their participation. c. Each team will participate in two enactments the first day, against two different teams. Each team will be required to change sides plaintiff/prosecution to defendant, defendant to plaintiff/prosecution for the second enactment. Numerical scores will be assigned to each team’s performance by the judges. d. The two teams with the most wins and highest numerical score will compete on the following day, except that any team that has won both its enactments will automatically advance, regardless of its point total.

The final enactment will be a single elimination tournament. Plaintiff/prosecution and defendant will be determined by a coin toss by the Mock Trial Program Manager. All teams invited to the State Finals must attend the final trial enactment. f. A judge will determine the winner. The judge’s decision is final .

The Mock Trial Program Manager compiles all of the forms and submits them to the MCLE Board within 7 days of receiving the forms from the County Coordinators. d. Once the tournament has been accredited, certificates will be generated by the MCLE staff at the NYSBA and emailed to attorneys. e.

That is, an attorney-judge earns credits for trial time only; an attorney coach earns credit for time spent working with students only which does not include the advisor’s personal preparation time.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
