Our partner Jack Gillick was proud to serve as a judge on May 24, 2017 for the Law Fair program run by the New Jersey State Bar Foundation. Law Fair is a mock trial competition held for grades 3 to 6 in which students develop their own legal case, including facts and witnesses. The winners of the competition then come to the New Jersey Law Center and present a mock trial, following which the winning students and teachers are presented with a plaque. Students from numerous schools also attended and served as “jurors” who got to deliberate and present their verdict.
Jack, who is a trustee for the Foundation, was proud to advise that over 300 students were in attendance and notes that the two winning schools were from Nutley and Lebanon, representing the 4th and 6th grades.
