    Do mysteries excite you?  Do you dream of being a federal judge, prosecutor, defense attorney or expert witness? Do you dive into crime scene shows such as CSI, Criminal Minds, NCIS, and Law & Order or podcasts like Serial, Criminal and Someone Knows Something?  Go behind the scenes and learn what happens during a murder investigation and the trial that follows.

    Students will visit the scene of the crime and collect evidence from this true crime story. Using clues discovered at the scene of the crime, both in person and remote students will analyze the evidence. By the end of the week, students will be assigned a role in a moot court trial, where detectives and analysts will present the forensic evidence, lawyers will argue how the evidence should be interpreted, and judges will make a decision about the innocence/guilt of the defendant based on the evidence presented. 

    Get a first hand look at what it takes to examine a crime scene, solve the mystery and argue the case!
