UCLA SCHOOL OF LAW NEEDS VOLUNTEER JURORS FOR MOCK TRIALS
Jury volunteers will serve on a case and render a verdict. Deliberations will be videotaped. No prior experience as a juror is necessary. Each trial will last approximately 5 hours and will take place at the UCLA School of Law. When you arrive at the main entrance of the Law School, you will see signs posted directing you to your court room and Mock Trial.
Select ONE date per case between April 13 and 26, 2012 from the following schedule. You are welcome to participate in more than one trial but you may serve as a juror only once per case. This is important so that all jurors rendering a verdict on a particular case be unbiased with no prior knowledge of the facts of the case.
