Mock Trial Club

GavelMock trial offers high school students the opportunity to learn what it is like to prepare and present a legal case before the Illinois Courts. Students will become more familiar with the law, courtroom procedures, and the legal system while improving the basic skills of listening, reading, writing, analyzing, speaking, and working as a team. Members tryout in November, attend weekly meetings, meet monthly with judges and lawyers at the Sixth District Municipal Courthouse, participate in scrimmages with Hubbard and Mt. Carmel, and compete in the DuPage County Competition and the NWSBA/Maine South Invite. They also attend the Constitutional Rights Foundation Law Day and the John Marshall Law School workshops. In March, members compete in the ISBA Regional and State Mock Trial presentations.
