Visitors to the Indiana Black Expo this weekend will have a chance to see how being a lawyer is cool.

Aside from games, giveaways, and the usual expo events, mock trials will be part of the Indianapolis Bar Association's booth during the final weekend of this year's expo, which is Friday through Sunday.

For two hours each afternoon, teens from Reach for Youth's Teen Court program will conduct the mock trials, serving as judge, jury, attorneys, and the accused. Audience participation will also occur.

Meanwhile, attorneys and paralegals from the IBA and Marion County Bar Association, along with law students from the Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis are participating at a booth, where expo attendees can have fun and win prizes at a spin-the-wheel game about law and history. The booth will be in Exhibit Hall E in the Indiana Convention Center.
