Joseph M. Marabondo will serve as a judge at the 2nd Annual Scarlett Knight Mock Trial Invitational, hosted by Rutgers University Mock Trial Association on November 17th and 18th. This event is a two-day tournament consisting of mock trial teams from colleges and universities across the country. Competitors will face a 4-round tournament during which teams argue a fictional criminal case pattern, representing both the prosecution and the defense. Teams are then judged by attorneys and judges who score the teams based on their preparation, presentation, and trial advocacy skills.

The Rutgers University Trial Association is open to all students, regardless of major, in hopes of providing hands-on trial experience and an opportunity to strengthen their public speaking and leadership skills.
