2016 NBTA Tournament of Champions – For Volunteers

Welcome, Volunteers!

This year, Berkeley Law will host the National Board of Trial Advocacy Tournament of Champions, one of the premier law school trial competitions in the nation. The competition will be held October 21-23, 2016, at the Phillip Burton Federal Building in San Francisco. The Tournament of Champions is generously sponsored by the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA), GJEL Accident Attorneys, Keker & Van Nest LLP, and Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger.

We need volunteers to serve as bailiffs/timekeepers and to assist with score tabulations, courtroom set up, food set up and clean up, and other tasks.

We would greatly appreciate your help on Friday, October 21, Saturday, October 22, 2016, and Sunday, October 23. For more information and to sign up, please use the following links:
