The 2013 State High School Mock Trial Competition will take place March 15-16 at the Metro Courthouse in Nashville. This annual competition brings students together from across the state to test their advocacy skills. The 2013 case presents the prosecution of Cameron Paul for the first-degree murder of Thor Brush. The competition also presents an opportunity for young lawyers to network with other young practitioners from across the state, as well as members of the state and federal judiciary. Reimbursement for meals and mileage is available. Also, for individuals willing to judge at least one round on Friday and one round on Saturday (and residing outside of Davidson County), the TBA will provide lodging on Friday night at the downtown DoubleTree Hotel. The competition needs lots of volunteers to run smoothly! Sitting judges in Tennessee may volunteer to serve as presiding judges of trial rounds, lawyers may serve as scorers, and law students and legal staff may serve as bailiffs. Those who want to volunteer should download the appropriate form and submit it to Mock Trial Chair Troy Weston at
