PSC Model Illinois Government
MODEL ILLINOIS GOVERNMENT
Model Illinois Government is a structured legislative simulation. Undergraduate students may participate by role-playing various legislative positions. These positions include: legislators, executive officers, lobbyists, journalists, budget analysts, and all party leadership positions. Students role-playing legislators are assigned a political party and districts and are placed in legislative committees. Delegation awards and individual awards are given based on performance during the simulation.
MOOT Court Competition
Held concurrently with Model Illinois Government, a Moot Court competition also takes place. Teams of attorneys argue before a panel of student justices and legal professionals and are scored based on presentation and knowledge of the case fact. Individual and team awards are presented at the end of the simulation, and students may also campaign for Executive Board positions (Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, Comptroller, etc.) to take a more active role in the organization of the simulation.
