IMG_4770.jpg

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This class will focus on students learning the purpose and structure of the U.S. Constitution using moot court as the primary learning strategy. Moot court is a simulated courtroom experience in which students play the role of attorneys arguing at the Supreme Court. There is no better way to learn the constitution than moot court because students will have to argue the meaning, purpose, and interpretations of the constitution as it applies to actual governance.

 

In addition to constitutional understanding, students will also gain confidence in their critical thinking, argument, and presentation skills. 

 

Year one will focus on the body of the constitution. Year two will focus on the amendments. Students will argue in moot court both in class and against other students in moot court competitions!
