Courtworks is an educational outreach program designed to teach middle school students about the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Supreme Court cases, and the legal profession in a fun and interactive way. As part of the program, law students conduct classroom visits to teach students how to analyze a fact pattern and formulate an argument. The current curriculum focuses on the 4th Amendment right against unreasonable searches and seizures as it relates to the everyday experiences of the students. During the classroom visit, the law students also have the chance to talk to the middle school students about going to college and why education is so important. In the fall, Court Works provides students the opportunity to conduct a mock trial of the case they studied.
