The ISBA High School Mock Trial Invitational
March 18 - 19, 2023
Public Affairs Center - University of Illinois - Springfield (UIS)
Volunteer for the 2023 ISBA High School Mock Trial Invitational, which will be held on March 18 and 19, 2023 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, and jurors/evaluators for each trial. You do not have to be a litigator to volunteer!
This year's Mock Trial Problem is a criminal law case involving a shooting at a community theater. To volunteer, fill out the volunteer form below by March 8, 2023. After signing up, you will receive information about the program. 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.
