Yesterday, I helped Judge the 2015 ISBA High School Mock Trial Invitational, which was held at Circuit Court in DuPage County. I had a fantastic time; it was a real pleasure to see young men and women put their hearts and souls into the ISBA’s mock trial competition. In the two rounds that I judged, I saw several great performances – the most memorable to me was from Marcel Sams of Homewood-Flossmoor, who put on a great opening statement and direct examination, all without notes. One of the cross examinations by Benet, the closing statement from Highland Park, and Providence Catholic’s Direct Examinations stood out on a day of great performances as well.
Congratulations and good luck to all of the teams!
