“Raise the Bar, Make Your Case”
NJC is a program for students to become more involved in the judicial program on a national level. Participants choose between doing a Mock trial or a Model US Supreme Court (appellant court) and prepare oral arguments, for both prosecution and defense. Appellant participants also serve as justices in addition to arguing their cases.
Students from across the country participate in NJC. This past year IL had 4 appellate teams and 1 mock trial team.
Our teams for this year were:
Vikrant Avenini, Saatvi Durai – Waubonsie Valley
Iniya Chandrakumar, Rida Majeed – Waubonsie Valley
Saniya Desai, Jeanelle Zhou – Waubonsie Valley
Vikram Narashimhan, Hamza Sheikh – Waubonsie Valley
