Peoria associates Andrew Bell, Matt Thompson, Natalie Thompson and Tim Gronewold, as well as retired partner Gary Peplow, served as judges in the 2nd Annual Bradley University Mock Trial Invitational. Bradley University participates each year in a collegiate instruction trial advocacy program using case materials provided by the American Mock Trial Association. Students learn to evaluate facts and legal issues through this program and develop a wide variety of important skills by preparing to present their case in a competitive format. This year's event was a two day, four round tournament and involved approximately 20 teams. First place went to Indiana, followed by Elgin, DePaul, North Central, and Illinois State.
