As the end of summer approaches each year, the YMCA and the American Bar Association partner to host the National Judicial Competition (NJC) in Chicago, IL.  This Appellate and Trial Court contest brings together high-performing teams from State Conferences around the country for two and a half days of courtroom proceedings.  Students are able to take advantage of facilities like the John Marshall Law School, Chicago Bar building, and the Federal Courthouse.  Delegates also have free time to explore the Windy City and the opportunity to enjoy a Dinner Boat Cruise on Lake Michigan their final evening in Chicago.  This year, Texas YG is thrilled to send a delegation of 29 students to NJC!  These 29 students made up three of the Trial Court teams and six of the Appellate Court teams that earned high scores at our 2017 High School State Conference.  They will show off their judicial skills in Chicago August 1-4.  Trial Court teams will participate in up to five rounds while Appellate Court teams will participate in up to ten.  Congratulations, delegates!  We look forward to following your time at NJC next week.
