Verdict Reached in Jack Jones Trial!
On to the Next Case...
Students spent class time this week (11/17) preparing for trial. Prosecution and Defense Attorneys are busy developing arguments, writing opening statements and preparing direct examination questions for their witnesses. Witnesses have been provided written affidavits for this trial so they can concentrate on studying their roles and really getting into character.
Students will use the first half of our next class to continue preparations, and hopefully we will be able to begin the trial during the second half of class.
Prosecution and Defense Attorneys: Work together in your teams this week if possible to finalize Opening Statements, Direct Examination questions, and Closing Statements (at least get a draft done). Remember to send me your statements so that I may review them and provide feedback before our next class.
Witnesses: Study your affidavits! Make sure you know what questions the attorney will be asking you and what your answers will be. Get into character!
Jury Members: Re-read the Letter from the Judge I provided to understand your responsibilities. Read the definitions of the three charges brought in this case.
If there are any questions, please contact me. Good Luck and Have Fun!
