13 Questions on Conference?

14 Bylaw 18  Fundamentally different from ‘N-3’  Please take a fresh approach

15 Bylaw 18 1. Scope 2. Operating Provision  Is to regulate the provision of student judges by LSSs/LSAs at ALSA Conference  Refer s4.6 of ALSA Constitution

16 3. Provision of Judges  To enter teams into 4 competitions (excl. paper presentation) you must provide 1 judge  The candidate must be approved as a student judge  Explanatory guide will be provided  Sufficient time will also be provided for you to submit another candidate if your original candidate is rejected

17 4. Exceptions 5. Judges’ Briefing  Broad exceptions policy  Your judge will be briefed prior to judging  Conference will also offer ‘upskilling’  The LSS or individual student judge can sign up to assist on panels, as an associate, client or witness to improve their judging  Alternatively, they will be called upon as needed

18 6. Enforcement 7. International  If you register 3 teams (excl. paper presentation) no judge required.  Do not fall within application of the bylaw  International jurisdictions have a significant financial hurdle which would likely see them fall within the exception every time.  Will be reviewed after 1 year of implementation to see if there are other ways they can contribute.

19 Rationale for the Bylaw 1. Improve consistency of judging quality at ALSA 2. Improve the quality of your student judges 3. Avoid other measures – such as capping # of teams

20 2014 Registration for Student Judges Conference 2014 Registration [for student judges provided under Bylaw 18]  $200 discount off (gold) registration price  Ie student judge registration will cost you $550
