VANDERBURGH COUNTY TEEN COURT

The Evansville Bar Association and Evansville Bar Foundation are pleased to participate with the Vanderburgh Superior Juvenile Court and Youth Resources of Southwestern Indiana to provide the Vanderburgh County Teen Court. If you are a student at a Vanderburgh County High School and are interested in participating in this actual court experience, please contact Youth Resources, http://www.youth-resources.org/Teen-Court.aspx, to learn more about the program and how to participate.

 
MOCK TRIALS

Every year during Law Week, which is the first week of May, the Evansville Bar Association sponsors mock trials which are open to all Vanderburgh County high schools. This allows teams of high school students to act as trial lawyers, witnesses, jurors, and other trial personnel to realistically present a case in front of a volunteer attorney "judge." Over 250 students participate in this on an annual basis. The Mock Trials are followed by a lunch hosted by the Evansville legal community where different topics about the justice system are presented and discussed by the students.

To learn more about participation in the Mock Trials, contact the Evansville Bar Association Office at 812.463.3201 or e-mail susan@evvbar.org.
