High school students to argue case in moot court at Michigan Hall of Justice

The Michigan Supreme Court Learning Center’s “Exploring Careers in Law” program takes place this week at the Michigan Hall of Justice in Lansing.

High school students from Alanson, Alpena, Battle Creek, Brownstown, Carleton, Dimondale, East Lansing, Grand Rapids, Grosse Pointe Park, Leslie, Midland, Milford, Novi, Sanford, Superior Twp., Tekonsha, Walled Lake, and Wayne will be participating.

Throughout the week, participants will hear presentations from legal professionals and members of the judiciary. On Friday, July 20, the students will take part in a mock oral argument in the Michigan Supreme Court courtroom to decide whether the government needs a search warrant to access cell phone location data.

The “Exploring Careers in Law” program offers an opportunity for high school students to learn about the judicial system and develop important reasoning and presentation skills.
