A promising class of high school students from Veterans Tribute Career and Technical Academy (VTCTA), conducted two mock trials in the courtroom of District Court Judge Nancy Allf at the Regional Justice Center today. The aspiring attorneys did an impressive job trying their cases and serving as jurors before a real attorney serving as a judge. The students took their roles very seriously and presented their work as if they had been in law school for years.

Veterans Tribute Career and Technical Academy is a Clark County School District magnet program introduced in 2009 to prepare students for careers in law enforcement and criminal justice. The teachers lived up to the school’s mission to “create a rigorous learning environment engaging students through collaborative problem-solving while promoting respect and responsibility in honor of those who have served our nation and community.” The students were polite, friendly and appreciative. Giving students the opportunity to learn by doing in the field is a great way to cultivate young professionals. They told me that they came away learning much more than if they would have just done their mock trial at school.
