Court of Appeals

Grades 9th – 12th

In the Court of Appeals, students specific to their role—such as an attorney, witness, or judge—try a case or present a case to an appellate court. They will get a chance to argue each side of their case throughout the Youth Legislature Conference. Throughout the weekend, each student also receives a chance to judge an Appeals Court or a Supreme Court case, where there are normally five to seven judges during each of these trials.
