The University of St. Francis seeks mock trial judges for its annual Collegiate Mock Trial Invitational tournament taking place on Saturday, Jan. 23 and Sunday, Jan. 24, 2016.


The tournament will take place in the courtroom of the Robert W. Plaster Free Enterprise Center, located at the St. Bonaventure Campus in downtown Joliet. Mock Trial judges will receive a brief orientation to the case and the rules of the competition before each trial. A meal will be served on Saturday afternoon, Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon.
