Moot Court Madness!
Moot Court Team headed to the Western Regional Moot Court Tournament!
Pre Law Resource Center coordinator Blake Wilson (Criminal Justice) is coaching the first-ever Stan State Moot Court Tournament team in preparation for its upcoming competition at the Western Regional Moot Court Competition, to be held at Fresno State on November 1 and 2, 2019 from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. The students, known as 'attorney-contestants,' are enrolled in Coach Wilson's CJ 3125 Moot Court class, launched this semester as the foundation for competition in both the Regional Moot Court Tournament as well as the intramural tournament taking place at the end of the semester. Let's cheer on our Semantic Warriors as they perfect their oral argument skills and learn what it's like to argue a case (and maybe win it) before the United States Supreme Court! Please contact Prof Wilson for more information.

New Course Development
CJ 4945 Court Observer Program This three-credit (3.0) Court Observer Program is designed for the student as a transitional tool from the academic world to the legal profession. Selected students will meet weekly at the Stanislaus Superior Court and observe court proceedings with the cooperation of local judges. There will also be regular meetings with the faculty member overseeing this Program, wherein students and the faculty member will discuss the students’ experiences and observations at Court. During the course of this program, students will apply the theoretical knowledge they acquired in the classroom to practical situations in a working professional environment. Students must attend their assigned court for 120 hours.
Prerequisites: CJ 2250, 2255, 2280 or consent of instructor. Participation in this program requires an application, interview, and approval of the instructor and/or agency representative. Open to all students.
