The ISBA High School Mock Trial Invitational
March 16 - 17, 2024
Public Affairs Center - University of Illinois - Springfield (UIS)
Volunteer for the 2024 ISBA High School Mock Trial Invitational, which will be held on March 16 and 17, 2024 in person at the Public Affairs Center at the University of Illinois -Springfield in Springfield, Illinois!!
The Invitational gives Illinois high school students a chance to learn what it is like to prepare and present a legal case before Illinois courts. Students gain an understanding of the justice system and improve their knowledge, skills, and ability to work as a team and articulate in a reasoned, thoughtful manner. Judges, lawyers, paralegals, law students and other legal professionals are needed to act as presiding judges, jurors/evaluators and bailiffs for each trial. You do not have to be a litigator to volunteer!
This year's Mock Trial Problem is a civil case involving a collision between a car driven by a group of teens and a city maintenance vehicle. To volunteer, fill out the form below by March 8, 2024. You will receive more information about the program and your role closer to the event. We ask that volunteers arrive at least 20 minutes before their chosen time slots.
The case materials and other information are available on the ISBA High School Mock Trial webpage.
