Mock Trial is Maine East's law club. The club meets Tuesdays after school from 3:30 to 4:15 in Rm. 330. At meetings students learn trial preparation and procedure and the rules of evidence. Each year the Illinois Bar Association provides the facts of a case, pertinent documents and witness statements. Students use these to prepare both sides of the case and compete. In addition to possible scrimmages with other schools, there is a regional competition in the Rolling Meadows Courthouse in late winter. A state competition is held at the University of Illinois in spring.
For infomation, please contact Ms. Conlon or Mr. Thomas in the Social Science Department, Rm. 332. Their e-mail addresses are firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com respectively.
All are welcome!
