Last Friday, the Government class participated in the DC Circuit Court Historical Society’s mock court program, alongside students from H.D. Woodson, Maret, School Without Walls and McKinley Tech. Latin students from Mr. Liu’s government class presented oral arguments before U.S. District Court Judge Ketanji Jackson. The Latin students created smart responses to tough questions on a hypothetical Fourth Amendment case. Judge Jackson named senior Luke Tewalt as the outstanding advocate for her courtroom. Students that participated included Nathanael Cooper, Arthayuga Briscoe, Daisy Hand, Shelby Ferncrombie, Jala Lee, Antonina Gomez, Sydney Weaver, Micah Gans, Luke Tewalt, Isaiah Stewart, Maren Cochran, Jia Fleming, Zoe Woods-Arthur, Benjamin Southworth and Mason Gray. Special thanks go to the outside volunteer attorneys from the Department of Justice and Goodwin Procter LLP, who helped our students prepare.
