Teachers Experience "Ohio Government in Action"

Source: Court News Ohio, Feb. 27, 2020 - by Csaba Sukosd

Thousands of students come to the Thomas J. Moyer Ohio Judicial Center every year. But the building’s most pivotal visitors are arguably teachers. More than 20 educators recently traveled to the home of the state Supreme Court to expand their intellects and practices through an Ohio Center for Law-Related Education (OCLRE) program known as Ohio Government in Action.


High School Students Head to Mock Trial Regional Competitions

More than 800 Ohio high school students are one step closer to representing Ohio at the National High School Mock Trial Competition in May. Out of the 319 teams that participated in the District Competition on January 17, 91 teams emerged undefeated and will now advance to the next level of competition. On Friday, February 7, these students will enter courtrooms across the state to take part in the Ohio Center for Law-Related Education’s (OCLRE) 37th Annual Ohio Mock Trial Regional Competition.


Teams Make a Good Case for Advancement

A police officer shoots a man who points a toy bow and arrow at him -- was the officer justified in using deadly force? That question kicked off the 2016 Ohio Mock Trial district competitions Jan. 29, during which Worthington Kilbourne and Thomas Worthington high school students argued as prosecutors or defense attorneys or served as witnesses, scoring high enough to advance to the Feb. 19 regional contests.
