Mock jurors needed in Northampton

The Hampshire County Bar Association is looking for students to act as mock jurors for a training later this month. From Attorney Marissa Elkins, President of the bar association:

This is a very important training to familiarize attorneys with new attorney-led jury selection procedures that have been put in place in Massachusetts. The training will be conducted by Superior Court Judges Bertha Josephson and Mary Lou Rup (UMass ‘70). We are trying to round up 30 - 40 people to serve as mock jurors.

The training will take place on November 17th at 3 pm at the Hampshire Superior Court in Northampton..  This is a great opportunity to meet lawyers and judges, and to see up close and personal what jury selection looks like (without being on an actual jury!).

Interested students should contact Attorney Elkins directly at melkins@marissaelkinslaw.com.
