Judges' Sign Up

The George Mason University School of Law Trial Advocacy Association cordially invites practitioners to serve as judges for our upcoming Costello Criminal Trial Advocacy Competition held at the Fairfax County Judicial Center in Fairfax, Va. This competition provides students with an opportunity to hone their courtroom advocacy skills and receive constructive feedback from practicing attorneys and judges. We would be delighted to have you join us.
This is an excellent opportunity for you to help shape the next generation of young attorneys and to interact with students, faculty, and local judges and practitioners. Please feel free to contact us with any questions at We look forward to seeing you there!
Your commitment to judge a round requires only a few hours of your time, and complementary catered meals are provided for all rounds. Additionally, all volunteers are encouraged to join us for a complementary cocktail reception after the Friday evening round. The competition schedule is below:
