Ms. Jackie Knight’s Criminal Justice class has just completed their first mock trials of the year. The trials required students to take on various roles such as lawyers, jurors, defendant, witnesses, judge, and bailiff. The students conducted two mock trials, both having an alleged murder victim. Students had to study their parts and perform the roles accordingly. Students thoroughly enjoyed the process which allowed them to fully engage with the various aspects of our justice system. The class will conduct more mock trials in the spring.
