Loyola Mock Trial is formed by Loyola Undergrad Sarah Wake and Coach Mike Walsh.


Loyola competes in its first tournament:  The Lewis College Regional Tournament.

In the fall, Loyola begins its second year as a mock trial team.  It competes in invitational tournaments at Lewis University and Eastern Illinois University.

Loyola begins the second half of the season by competing at Northwestern University's invitational tournament at the Lake County Courthouse in Waukeegan, IL.

Loyola competes for the second time at the Lewis College Regional Tournament at the Will County Courthouse in Joliet, IL.  Loyola places fifth overall and qualifies for the National Tournament in Richmond, KY at the University of Eastern Kentucky.

Loyola competes at the National Tournament it Richmond and places fourth in the Miller Division.


With a much larger team, Loyola began the season fielding three teams, up from last years two.  The team started the season at Loyola's Water Tower Campus and competes at Lewis University, St. Francis University, and Northwestern University, and Loras College.

Despite a range of talent and experience, the team fell short of making a repeat trip to the national tournament.  However, many new faces gained valued experience and look to have a successful 2005-2006 campaign!
