Education for Citizenship (Feb. 14, 2014)

In this on-site interview from the Annual Meeting of the New York State Bar Association, Bar Past -President A. Thomas Levin and Chair of the Law, Youth and Citizenship committee Rich Bader discuss some of the statewide programs that the Bar Association supports in New York State schools. These include Mock Trials in secondary schools in which students argue a case based on data supplied by the Bar Association before a real judge; this is a competition among teams trying the case. Another program is “We the People,” in which both elementary- and secondary-school compete in mock congressional hearings and develop questions based upon the U.S. Constitution or specific laws.
