Law Day 2015

On Friday, June 5, 2015 I helped the local court present its annual Law Day presentation for over 800 fifth graders of the Edmonds School District. This was my 29th year doing this. It is a lot of work, but a labor of love. It has grown from 60 kids in 1987 to over 800+ kids now days. I organize the mock criminal jury trial presentation where the kids play the roles of Judge, Prosecutor, Defense Counsel, Bailiff and Jurors. Each “jury trial” lasts exactly 23 minutes. This year we had 5 Guilty verdicts, 5 Not Guilty verdicts and 2 Hung Juries. It was a lot of fun! And the judges provided free pizza afterwards to me and all the volunteer attorneys. 🙂
