Timothy Liam Epstein, Chair of SmithAmundsen's Sports Law Practice Group, was quoted in the January 7, 2011 issue of the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin. In the article, "U of I Law Boot Camp a Real Eye-Opener," Timothy, who attended University of Illinois Law School, discusses his experience while attending the boot camp in 2003 and 2004 saying, "The learning curve and the amount of information crammed into that one week was probably the most I learned in one week throughout my time in law school at the University of Illinois."

The itinerary for the annual boot camp is fast-paced and includes brief lectures by lawyers and judges on how to operate in Chicago's state and federal courts. It also includes observations of hearings in the various branches, including traffic, criminal and federal courts, also administrative law hearings and arguments in the Illinois Appellate Court and the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
