Based in Burr Ridge, Illinois, Codilis & Associates is a legal practice that focuses on providing real estate law services to its clients. In conjunction with their professional activities, many Codilis and Associates attorneys are involved with the international law fraternity Phi Alpha Delta.
Every year, Phi Alpha Delta hosts a mock trial competition for teams of law school students across the United States. The competition takes place in Washington, DC, and allows 30 teams of four students each to argue as both prosecution and defense in multiple rounds for a pre-disclosed, fictitious case. Professional lawyers and judges volunteer to watch the teams compete and determine the winner.
Phi Alpha Delta’s upcoming 2017 competition will take place from Thursday, February 23 through Sunday, February 26. Winners are announced for first through fourth place, and special honors are also awarded to law students who exhibit exceptional individual skill as prosecution, defense, witnesses, or advocates. Last year’s winners came from the University of Illinois College of Law.
