High School Students Study Appeals

The 2nd DCA will host an “Appellate Court Experience” (ACE) educational outreach program for El Camino High School students on Wed., April 19, at 9:30 am. 

"The ACE program includes a classroom curriculum administered by appellate attorneys, followed by a visit to the Court of Appeal to observe oral arguments in a case previously studied in the classroom. After oral argument, the students are introduced to the appellate court process first-hand with an opportunity to interact with the justices and the attorneys," according to the AOC press release.

The event is cosponsored by the Constitution Rights Foundation, the Los Angeles County Bar Association’s Appellate Courts Committee, and the California Academy of Appellate Lawyers.
