ANNUAL MOCK TRIAL The NWSBA sponsors a mock trial tournament for area high school students in February of each year. More than 65 judges and members of the NWSBA volunteer their time to assist students from 28 high schools in the greater Chicago area as they explore and learn about the judicial process. Students who have participated in the mock trial program say that they have benefited by learning the meaning of good citizenship, and how to work as a team, developing oral presentation skills, learning the value of setting a goals and planning, learning how to think on their feet and to face challenging obstacles with enthusiasm and confidence. The experience teaches students to understand the American judicial system, familiarize them with the law, courtroom procedures and the legal profession, and helps to improve skills such as listening, speaking, writing, reading, and analyzing information.
JUDGES' NIGHT & ANNUAL MEETING All Cook County judges are invited as guests of the Bar to join our members as we acknowledge our judiciary and their contributions in providing equal access to justice for those utilizing our court system. Each year we present a "Public Service Award" to a member of the judiciary recognizing their exceptional contribution to the profession and community.
The highlight of the evening is the presentation of "The Honorable Timothy C. Evans Scholarship" to a local law student who has demonstrated financial need as well as a commitment to the highest scholastic standards, leadership skills and involvement in their school, community and extra curricular activities. The scholarship is made possible through voluntary contributions made by members of the NWSBA.

Throughout their own careers, honorees have provided professional guidance and have shared practical knowledge and skills to those making the transition from law school to a legal practitioner.
