Volunteer for the 2020 High School Mock Trial Invitational

Volunteers are needed for the 2020 ISBA High School Mock Trial Invitational, which will be held March 14-15 at the University of Illinois College of Law in Champaign-Urbana.


This program provides an opportunity for students to learn what it is like to prepare and present a legal case before the Illinois courts. Participating students gain a better understanding of the justice system and improve their knowledge, skills, and ability to articulate in a reasoned, thoughtful manner.


This year's case is a civil case involving a driver who lost control of a vehicle and drove off the side of the road, striking a parked tow truck that had its hazard lights flashing. The plaintiff, Dakota Young, was injured and has sued the defendant, Riley Miller, for several claims.


If you are interested in volunteering, fill out the online volunteer form by March 6. Additional mock trial information and resources are available on the ISBA website
