Attention 1Ls! Please see the MCHB bylaws for information on the 1L selection process. We will be selecting 3 students from the 1L Mock Trial competition, 5 from appellate advocacy in the spring, and 4 based on overall performance in the mock trial, contract negotiation, and appellate advocacy. This means that the more you participate in UW's in-house competitions, the more likely you are to receive an invite to join at year's end. Please contact Emily Toler, firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER OF MCHB
Twelve first-year students are invited to join the Board each year. Three students are invited based on their performance in the 1L Mock Trial competition. Five are invited based on their performance in the 1L Appellate Advocacy Competition held in Spring quarter. Four are invited based on their cumulative performance during all first-year competitions, including the Contract Negotiation Competition held during Winter quarter.
All applicants -- even those who believe they will be invited on based on Appellate Advocacy or Mock Trial performance -- must fill out membership applications. Applications for membership will be available near the end of Spring quarter. Individuals selected for membership are generally notified in early to mid-summer, prior to the submission deadline for OCI resumes.
Eight second-year students are invited to join the Board each year. Two are invited based on their performance in the 2L/3L Mock Trial Competition. Two are invited based on their performance in the Judson Falknor Appellate Advocacy Competition. Four are invited based on their cumulative performance during all competitions during their first and second years.
3L students are generally not invited to join MCHB. Some students, however, may occasionally be invited on to the Board as Special Selections.
Detailed information about our selection process is available in our Bylaws.
