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.
