Law Day Live Needs Volunteers


The Nevada Supreme Court thanks the 2013 Law Day Live volunteers. With help from those volunteers, organizers mentored three excellent groups of students last year.


This year, the Supreme Court is working with six schools and needs several volunteer mentors to coach students as they prepare to present oral arguments before the Nevada Supreme Court. The ABA-selected topic is "Voting Rights," and students will focus their presentation using three cases. Participating students are located in Elko, Las Vegas, Reno, Virginia City and Winnemucca. Help is needed in all of these communities. 


Those interested in volunteering or learning more should email Myrna Byrd at

Inns of Court Meeting


The Bruce R. Thompson Chapter of the American Inns of Court will meet on Thursday, March 13 at 4 p.m. The meeting will take place in Judge Miranda Du's courtroom, located on the eighth floor of the Federal Building at 400 S. Virginia Street in Reno. 


Judges Valerie Cook and William Cobb will lead the program, which is entitled "The Fine Art of Federal Practice." The social portion of the event will begin right after the presentation. Members and guests are welcome to attend.

Become a Mock Trial Judge


Nevada's highest-scoring Mock Trial teams are looking for volunteers from the legal community to serve as scoring and presiding judges during the upcoming Nevada Mock Trial state competition. To volunteer, contact Kathleen Dickinson via e-mail at or by phone at (702) 317-1408.


Scoring judges rate the performances of student attorneys and witnesses on both sides of the case; presiding judges play the role that real judges hold in actual trials.


The competition will take place at the Regional Justice Center in Las Vegas on Friday, March 7 and Saturday, March 8, from 7:45 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Volunteers may sign up for just the afternoon session, just the morning session or both. Breakfast and lunch will be served.
