FIELD DAY: Newark Federal Courthouse

We will be visiting Newark Federal Courthouse for an educational tour in order to give them an insight on an authentic opportunity to learn about the justice system by observing real cases and court procedures. The trip is aimed at enhancing the children's knowledge. They'll take a round the courthouse and show the tasks handled in different departments to our students as well as some mock trials. Students will be guided on a tour of the building. Topics covered will include more specific details on the role of the federal courts; the art and architecture of the building; symbols that reflect justice and government; features of courtrooms. The tour includes students visiting with a judge in a courtroom. Students will learn the federal judiciary and the Constitution; the importance of good citizenship; and jury service.
