Volunteering to be a timer for this competition is a great way to observe others compete and hear the feedback they provide to competitors. You can see what competing in a Moot Court Competition is like with no risk! However, if you sign up to volunteer on a specific date, you are committing to the entire evening: 5:30pm-9pm. We will provide you with dinner, a short break, and our endless gratitude.
