Information for Judges, Lawyers, Law Students & Legal Staff

Thank you for agreeing to volunteer at the 34th Annual Tennessee State High School Mock Trial Competition, March 14-15 in Nashville! Below you will find information that will assist you in making plans for the weekend. Please direct any questions about logistics to TBA staff member Stacey Shrader Joslin at (615) 383-7421. Questions about the competition rules or case should be directed to Mock Trial Chair Josh Dougan or Vice Chair Will Holloway (contact information provided on the right).

Mock trial volunteers will stay overnight at the Doubletree Hotel, located at 315 Fourth Ave. N. in downtown Nashville. Each volunteer will be provided with a hotel room for Friday night, March 14, at no charge IF they score at least one round on Friday and one round on Saturday AND live outside of Davidson County. Rooms must be requested. TBA will make the reservation and pay the hotel directly for the room and any taxes. Volunteers may submit a reimbursement form after the event to recoup the cost of mileage and parking associated with travel to the competition.

After March 7, DO NOT contact Stacey Shrader Joslin for any competition-related issues as she will be out of the country (and sadly missing her first state competition in 10 years!). We have assembled a great team of folks to assist with this year's competition. Please contact the TBA staff below based on the issue you are experiencing.
