Modern Tools for Modern Practice
For decades competition mock trials have been run on pen and paper. Modern law firms spend millions on software and jury analytics but our students and coaches practice the same way their parents (and grandparents) did. And insights from performance data?
Forget about it. GavelStats modernizes advocacy competitions with intuitive digital tools for organizers and participants.
Build Competitions
Competition organizers can build and manage competitions digitally. GavelStats' SmartPair(tm) technology automates pairings, scoring, room selection, evaluator assignments, start and end dates and times… all with the click of a button. Goodbye bad scheduling, judge conflicts and late-night tabulation sessions!
Digital Ballots
Our secure and responsive design mean evaluators can safely access ballots on their preferred devices - including smartphones or tablets - eliminating the paper ballot! Scores, standings and data flow through our platform in real-time, so you can spend less time counting and more time winning.
Manage Results
Unprecedented data gathering gives insight into every aspect of advocacy performance. Organizers know if their competitions are fair, students can compare their performance against national and regional averages and coaches can strategize to win more ballots.
With GavelStats, your students finally have modern tools to practice like modern firms.
