Mock Trial

District 219 Mock Trial teams compete in functional courtrooms in the Chicago land area. Mock trials are set up and structured just like a real court, bound by similar rules. This can help the students to know exactly what role each of the different people in a court (judges, lawyers, witnesses, etc.) do in the judicial system. D219 teams also host a Mock Trial Invitational at the Skokie Courthouse in January, and they also participate in the state competition held on the University of Illinois at Urbana - Champaign campus in March.

Mock Trial meets every Monday in Room 2015 from 3:30-5:30pm with Dr. Edwards.
