- The trial of The County of Geneva v. Dr. Frank N. Stein
Kids' Court, an innovative, interactive, award-winning program for Laurence sixth graders, introduces the children to the fundamentals of the United States' legal system.
Under the leadership of Head of School, Laurie Wolke, J.D., our seniors place fairytale characters on trial for a variety of crimes and bring the drama of the courtroom to life, assuming the roles of prosecutors, defense attorneys, and witnesses. Ultimately, student juries determine the guilt or innocence of these famous defendants.
This highly-acclaimed program, which has received considerable newspaper and television coverage, enhances students’ critical thinking skills, as they write a mock trial and develop and support their legal positions. Kids’ Court includes guest speakers, panel discussions, and a school-wide jury selection.
