Judges & Bailiffs


The Moot Court Governing Board is always actively seeking judges for the various competitions that we host. Having high-quality judges for our competitors is an essential part of the learning process that all of these competitions represent. Judges are only asked to volunteer a small portion of time and are provided with food and parking.

If you are interested in judging any of the competitions that we host, please contact Mary Rose Sullivan (sullivan.1009@osu.edu) to get more information. Thank You.


Each competition requires a number of bailiffs. Bailiffs keep time for the competitors and assist the judges in the “courtroom”. In return, bailiffs get to interact with members of the legal community, gain exposure to oral arguments and the opportunity to listen to judges’ critiques. Please stay tuned for announcements regarding opportunities to volunteer!
