Workshop: You Be the Judge
Thursday, May 21 2015
5:45 pm - 8:00 pm
What better setting than a courthouse to learn about the criminal justice system and how trials are conducted?
One of the many programs produced by the Bronx District Attorney's Community Affairs Office, You Be The Judge presents a mock trial involving a real-life case, with the audience participating as the jury. After witness and defendant "testimony," the audience will be given the opportunity to deliberate and hand down a verdict.
And, unlike the real thing, audience members will get to ask questions of the judge, the prosecutor and the defense attorney--all members of the Bronx D.A.'s staff playing the roles.
