Helping everyone learn about the law is important to me, and it was so great to participate as the 19th Judicial Circuit hosted the regional Mock Trial Competition here at the courthouse in Waukegan.


I started the Lake County Mock Trial Invitational as part as the Lake County Law-Related Initiative with Judge Victoria Rossetti and former Mundelein High School teacher Kathy Bell about 15 years ago. I was an Assistant State’s Attorney at the time and have coordinated the event ever since.
