Mock trial judges preside and/or score. Presiding judges perform the duties typically associated with trial court judges (managing the trial, ruling on evidentiary issues, etc.). Scoring judges evaluate student performance and provide an oral critique at the conclusion of the trial. Presiding judges may also be asked to evaluate and critique student performance. Do you prefer to preside, score, or are you willing to do either?
