Crawford, Lincoln, San Diego Students Go To Court

Students at court.

Students from Lincoln Academy of Public Safety, Crawford Academy of Law and San Diego High School participated in the annual Open Doors to Federal Court event.

Each year, the Federal Court allows students to visit their court rooms and participate in a mock trial. The students prepare in advance of the field trip by studying and practicing a mock trial script. The students then get to participate in the court room the day of the event.

This year’s mock trial focused on manslaughter charges for a teen driver that got in an accident while texting while driving.
