On March 22, 2011 the CBA Junior Class visited the United States District Court for the Northern District of New York in Syracuse thanks to the invitation of the Hon. Frederick J. Scullin, Jr., Senior U.S. District Judge. In small groups, classmates sat in courtrooms as “jurors” during several mock trails and were given the task of reaching verdicts in each case. The students learned first-hand about the workings of the justice system and also heard information about various legal career options.
