e-Connections Post Sacramento New Technology

Seniors at Sacramento New Technology High School participated in the seventh annual Law Day on Friday, April 20. The students took on various roles in a mock trial case that dealt with the First Amendment and Miranda rights. Some posed as attorneys, arguing for either the prosecution or defense while others were well-prepared witnesses and jurors. The jurors deliberated and were split in their verdict. Following the trial the seniors were treated to an awards dinner at the Delta King sponsored by U.S. District Judge James Ware and the law firm of Jones Day.

The law firm also supplied six attorneys who mentored the seniors throughout the day.
