UC Berkeley Law McBaine Moot Court Competition
Call for Volunteer Judges
UC Berkeley Law School is seeking diverse volunteer judges for its flagship internal moot court competition for 2Ls and 3Ls involving both written and oral advocacy. Judges are sought for the preliminary rounds, Monday March 17 and Wednesday March 19.
Judges may also be needed for the quarterfinals on Monday March 31 and the semifinals on April 3 (preferably real-life judges for these later rounds). Dinner for the judges (of all kinds) will start at 5:30pm at the Law School, and rounds start around 6:30pm.
The problem this year is US v. Nosal, a case that was taken up by the Ninth Circuit en banc (but never appealed) that asked the question of whether employees who violate terms-of-use policies at their companies commit federal crimes. The question bears on everything from using a friend's Facebook password to obtaining confidential government documents and turning them over to the press.

SEEKING WOMEN & MINORITY ARBITRATORS
FOR KAISER PERMANENTE PANEL
The Office of the Independent Administrator (OIA) is seeking qualified individuals who want to join its pool of possible arbitrators. There is no fee to do so and the OIA receives no money from the neutral arbitrators.
The OIA administers the arbitration system between Kaiser Permanente Health Plan, Inc., and its six million members in California. We administer about 650 cases a year and have approximately 275 neutral arbitrators on the panel. The panels are divided by region; Northern California, Southern California, and San Diego. The parties select their neutral arbitrator by striking and ranking 12 randomly generated names supplied by the OIA, or by jointly selecting any neutral arbitrator upon whom they can agree. Neutrals set their own fees and are paid by the parties.
Among other requirements, neutral arbitrators must either be lawyers with either ten years of substantial litigation and/or arbitration experience; retired state or federal judges; or lawyers with specifically designed arbitration training. Medical malpractice experience is not required. You must agree to follow the OIA Rules and ensure that the deadlines set forth in the Rules are met.
If interested, please go to the OIA website at www.oia-kaiserarb.com. You may complete the application on line. You may also obtain copies by emailing email@example.com or by calling 213-637-9847. Also see the links below for qualifications and a copy of the application.
