Volunteers sought for upcoming mock trial series, including Kent

The Michigan Center for Civic Education is seeking attorney volunteers for the upcoming Michigan Mock Trial series. Participants can choose their preferred location and volunteer activity for the series of competitions set for Saturdays in February and March.
