Alumni E-News January 2010
Happy New Year!

A Note from Professor Jerry Organ

Dear Alumni,
The University of St. Thomas School of Law and the UST Pre-Law Society will host the Fourth Hatting Invitational, a four-round undergraduate mock trial tournament, at the UST School of Law, on Saturday and Sunday, January 16-17, 2010 (Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend).  
We are looking for judges for the following dates and times:

  • ROUND 1: Saturday, January 16 at 9:00 a.m. 
  • ROUND 2: Saturday, January 16 at 2:00 p.m. 
  • ROUND 3: Sunday, January 17 at 8:30 a.m. 
  • ROUND 4: Sunday, January 17 at 1:00 p.m.

You DO NOT receive case materials beforehand and so there is no preparation required.  One of our committee members will review the rules/procedure with you when you report to the "Judges' Room" on the day of your service.
We have a full roster of 20 teams signed up to compete from several different colleges and universities in the Upper Midwest!  Volunteering as a judge is a great service to the School of Law and to the next generation of prospective lawyers.  Please let us know if you can help and feel free recruit your friends. To volunteer, please contact to Laura Thomas ( or Nicole Fredricks Jackson ( or 651-962-4863).
Professor Jerry Organ
