Thanks for your interest in joining York's award-winning mock trial team. Each year, we receive a case from the Illinois State Bar Association and prepare lawyers and witnesses for the plaintiff/prosecution and defendant. We then participate in meets at courthouses across Illinois, where we compete against other schools in the state. It's a great way to sharpen your public-speaking, critical-thinking, and writing skills!
