Law Fair (Grade 6)

 

Law Adventure (Grades 7 & 8)

 

 

The New Jersey Bar Foundation conducts a contest every year where students interested in law have the opportunity to develop and write a mock court case. There are two seperate sections: in Grade 6 it is called Law Fair and in  7th & 8th Grade it is called Law Adventure.

 

In order to participate, students must complete an application, which includes a recommendation from their previous Social Studies teacher.  Not all students will be selected, as this is a small group enrichment activity. 

 

Once the selections have been made, groups will be formed, and students will be scheduled.  Typically, they will miss thier Social Studies class about once a week. Students will be be required to make up work that they miss in class. Some students may have a modified schedule on Law days.  

 

Our groups will learn about laws, invent a case, and write up a case brief for the contest.

 

The contests are submitted in January and winners are notified in March. Winners will write a mock trial script and perform their case in front of a judge at the Law Center in New Brunswick.
