U.S. Government Students Visit the Federal Courthouse
About thirty AP U.S. Government students from East Central High School had the opportunity to learn about the federal judicial system first-hand.
The program, brought to the school by Magistrate Judge Jodi Jayne, is a pilot for a program that will hope to expand to other schools in the future. The students worked with the judge, bailiff, attorneys, and even the U.S. Marshall’s office to experience what a trial is like. Some served as jurors, others as attorneys, and some experienced other roles in the courtroom!
The Oklahoma Bar Association also volunteered the time of a number of attorneys and provided lunch for the students.
