Volunteer for the 2012 NITA Tournament of Champions at Chicago-Kent

As the 2010 champions, IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law is honored to be hosting the 2012 NITA Tournament of Champions trial competition this year.  The top sixteen trial advocacy teams in the nation will be coming to Chicago to compete.

Students and recent graduates are asked to volunteer as student representatives for visiting teams, and as bailiffs and runners during the competitions.

As a student representative, you will be assigned one of the teams and will act as their liason, answering questions, directing them to their courtrooms for their scheduled rounds, and contacting Tournament Staff if there are any issues throughout the competition.  Student representatives will need to be present at the Welcome Reception from 5:00-8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 24th, for the first rounds from 5:00-9:00 p.m. at the Daley Center on October 25, the second rounds at the Daley Center from 5:00-9:00 p.m. on October 26, and then for rounds three and four from 8:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 27.  If you are interested in participating, please email Rachel Remke, Trial Advocacy Administrator, at cktournamentofchampions@gmail.com.
