Student Law Firms, “Broad & Broader” and “Léman & Morris” Go to Trial

December 19, 2016

Last week, 7th Grade English students participated in a mock trial as part of their recent study of William Golding's Lord of the Flies. Throughout the book, students returned to the questions of "What can we learn about ourselves in extreme situations?" and "Are humans naturally good or evil?" Reflecting on these questions, student attorneys represented Golding, who was being sued for libel by the plaintiff, "Humankind", for showing humanity in a negative light. Faculty and administrators served as the trial jury.
