If you want to see some of Birmingham's brightest minds at work, join us at the Central Library downtown today (Thursday, March 15), from 4 to 5:30 p.m., as teen participants in the 2018 Birmingham Public Library Mock Trial Program  will do a trial run testing skills learned since the after-school program began Jan. 25.
The students, including some who plan to pursue legal careers after graduating, will conduct their mock trial in a courtroom inside the Jefferson County Courthouse across the street from the Central Library from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 22, 2018. At the conclusion of the mock trial, a jury will deliberate and return with a verdict.
The Mock Trial Program is a partnership between the Birmingham Public Library, the Northern District of Alabama’s U.S. Public Defender’s Office, and theBirmingham Bar Foundation. Coordinated by BPL’s Lance Simpson, the program is designed to introduce students from grades 6 to 12 in metro Birmingham to the critical thinking and advocacy skills utilized in courtroom trials
