2018 Youth Law Day, a success!

August 5, 2018

On Saturday, Aug. 4, 2018, nearly 200 students, ages 12 – 16, participated in the CCLA 2018 Youth Law Day at the Wake County Courthouse.

The students learned about the justice system and the different roles of those who work within the system. They also participated in open discussions with attorneys, judges, and law enforcement officers. A number of student volunteered to act as judge, attorneys, defendants, witnesses, bailiff, court reporter, or a juror, during a mock trial session. Lastly, they each had an opportunity to take a tour of the Wake County Jail and see how inmates live.

Thank you to everyone who participated and volunteered!
