Youth and Government
Illinois Youth And Government is part of a nationwide mock government program that provides students with an immersive educational experience inspiring life-long leadership, ethics, responsible citizenship, and self-confidence through participation in a model state government. In the judicial component of the program, students will draft an appellate brief and then present their oral argument in the Illinois Supreme Court.
