State Supreme Court to hold “moot court” educational program

LANSING — High school students have an opportunity to experience the life of a lawyer in the Michigan Supreme Court this summer.

The Court’s Learning Center is holding “moot court” in Lansing for students to learn about the legal system while sharpening their reasoning, writing, and speaking skills. Participants will argue a case involving police entering the backyard of a suspected marijuana grow house without a warrant, prompting discussion of Fourth Amendment protections.

Students will also get to work with attorneys and other legal professionals. The program will be running during the third week of July.

Registration is limited to 22 participants, selected on a first-come, first-serve basis. Click here for applications and additional information.
