Yesterday LAWA  broke out by TA groups and discussed the importance of evidence in a court trial. After they explained that very thoroughly to the students they allowed them to work on their parts and get more familiar with the statements they would have to say for the trial. For most of the afternoon, they released the students to work on the case on their own and to meet up with their teams in order to confirm everybody was on the same page. Afterwards, they had a law lecture with Professor Noah Messing explaining the cross examination and closing arguments of a trial. After dinner, they had a fun activity with Big Dave which taught them to gain more confidence as they danced their way from one end of the banquet room to another. Big Dave had them do that a couple of times and debriefed on how it made them feel and what differences they felt from the beginning to the end. Lastly, they had another fun activity where Thomas Farbacher introduced the TA’s, who were dressed up as different characters, in order to familiarize the students with the voir dire process of a court room. In this session, they allowed the students to ask the jurors questions in order to determine whether or not they’d be a good fit for the case.
