On March 3 Garrison 7th and 8th grade Explorer students got the opportunity to travel to the Walla Walla County Courthouse to meet with judges and lawyers and observe a pre-trial motion.
Students met first with County Clerk Kathy Martin who ushered them into the courtroom where they were allowed to sit in the jury seats and visit with the Honorable Judge Wolfram. Afterwards the students observed a pre-trial motion and had a lecture from two local attorneys about their positions as prosecutors and public defenders. The students then went to lunch! 7th grader Caitlin Carvalho had this to say, “It was amazing that we got to learn about the law firsthand, and it was kind how the judges and lawyers took time to visit with us and speak about their careers in the law.”
These students will be participating in their own mock trial on .
