Summer Programs at the Michigan Supreme Court Learning Centerwphungerford
Limited openings are available in summer programs for high school students interested in legal careers and for teachers who would like to use moot court simulations in their classrooms.
Exploring Careers in the Law for 10th–12th Grades
June 25–29; application deadline May 11
Moot Court in Your Classroom for Teachers
August 1–2; application deadline June 15
Participants in both programs will examine how appellate courts work by arguing a case as if before the Michigan Supreme Court. To prepare, participants will meet with legal professionals, court staff, and justices.
The example civil suit involves a case against 911 operators who treated a five-year-old boy’s emergency calls as a prank, despite a life-and-death situation. According to the law, should the case be allowed to proceed?
An announcement and applications for both programs are available online at http://courts.mi.gov/plc.
“Thank you so much for the opportunity to explore careers in law. The information presented and the entire experience was outstanding. Our daughter asked if there was a second week in addition to the current week. Now that is interest!”
