Law students interested in developing their advocacy skills, will gain valuable experience during this Fall’s Employment Law mock trial. The trial will take place on November 1, 2019 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. in the College of Law’s Ceremonial Courtroom. The lunch & learn will start at 11 a.m., while the Mock Trial begins at noon.
The purpose of this mock trial is to give managers and supervisors the opportunity to see what happens when alleged disability discrimination in the workplace results in litigation. We will explore what happens when an employee is terminated after being treated for cancer, which changed her appearance significantly. Students will be provided a mock trial problem to prepare and orally argue on behalf of their client. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain trial experience and showcase your talents in front of a practicing Labor & Employment attorney as well as the District Director for the South Eastern Region of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, who will serve as the judge during the Mock Trial.
Interested students may apply with a short statement of interest and obtain more information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by September 25, 2019.
