Volunteer attorneys needed for Constitution Day event Sept. 17

Volunteer attorneys are needed to help with the Constitution Day program presented on September 17 by Judge Michael Warren of the Oakland County Circuit Court.

Warren and the Constitution Day Committee will be hosting more than 300 high school and middle school students from across Oakland County via Zoom on Thursday, September 17, from 9 to 10 a.m.

“The committee is looking for 40-plus volunteer attorneys to assist with the program via Zoom with groups of five to eight students,” said a spokesperson for the Oakland County Bar Association. “Through individual Zoom rooms, the attorneys will assist their individual group of students on formulating an argument to support their designated position on a factual case scenario. Two students in each group will then present oral arguments on the case before an Oakland County Circuit Court judge or a visiting judge, and the judge will render an opinion. The attorneys are provided all of the material in advance and there is no research or much preparation involved.”

Detailed instructions and assignments will be e-mailed to the volunteer attorneys two weeks in advance. Attorneys can volunteer by contacting Karen Koshen, court resource and program specialist, at koshenk@oakgov.com or 248-858-0296 by August 30.
