Teen Court: Overview
Teen Court is a program in which students may participate in an actual trial of a first-offender minor that has committed a misdemeanor. Held on a monthly basis, Teen Court offers students the opportunity to participate in the civic requirement of jury duty by acting as "fact-finding" jurors who ask questions of the accused minors, conduct deliberations to reach a verdict, and make sentencing recommendations for first time teen offenders. It’s a great way for students to practice critical thinking and questioning strategies. Volunteer attorneys are also present to help train the students and provide insight into potential career opportunities in law. This is a great program for all students; however, if you are thinking of entering into a career in law, then this is an excellent resource! Parents or students who have any questions may contact the teacher advisor, Ms. Montesano ([email protected]). Teen Court Club meetings are on Tuesdays at on Zoom at 12:45.
