Mock Trial Attorney Coaches Needed For Las Vegas High School


The 2014 Mock Trial state finals are fast approaching and, due to unforeseen circumstances, the three teams at Advanced Technologies Career Academy (at 2501 Vegas Dr., in Las Vegas) are without attorney coaches during this final crucial preparation stage.


No matter how much they study and practice, these teams will be at a disadvantage this year - unless members of the State Bar of Nevada step in to help. All of the other teams at participating high schools in the north and south have an attorney in their corner, coaching them through the twists and turns of the legal system.


To learn more about what coaching entails or to volunteer, contact the Law Related Education staff: Kathleen Dickinson at, (702) 317-1408; and Cathi Britz at, (702) 317-1416.


If you aren't sure this is a job you can do, you are encouraged to ask questions. What it takes may be exactly what you have to give!

Appointment of Standing Committee on Judicial Ethics and Election Practices


The Standing Committee on Judicial Ethics and Election Practices has vacancies for two-year terms beginning January 2014. The Board of Governors of the State Bar of Nevada will appoint attorney members to fill the vacancies. Interested applicants should complete an online application form. Applications must be received by noon on February 7.


The Standing Committee on Judicial Ethics and Election Practices was created to resolve ethical disputes arising in the course of campaigns for judicial office and to provide judges and aspirants to judicial office with advisory opinions regarding ethical matters that may arise in the ordinary course of judicial service or in the elective or appointment process. Each member is appointed for a two-year term with no member appointed to more than four consecutive terms.
