North Suburban Bar Association Announces 5th Annual High School Mock Trial Invitational
Chicago - January 18, 2018
The North Suburban Bar Association will hold its 5th Annual High School Mock Trial Invitational on Jan. 25 at the Skokie Courthouse. The field of teams has grown to 16 for this year’s competition.
NSBA President Richard Pullano is leading efforts to organize the event, which he believes is key in promoting the profession to the future generation of lawyers.
“One of the primary reasons it is so important that we get the best and brightest to join our profession is to help those in need.” Pullano said “Lawyers are the first responders to the vulnerable and defenseless in society. On many occasions, without a lawyer in their corner, there would be no path to justice. This tournament is a fun and educational way of exposing these young adults to the justice system in hopes they will pursue a career in the law in the future.”
