Guam - As part of 2010 Law Week activities, the District Court held an open house today. McCool Middle School and University of Guam students were among those who toured the state of the art federal courthouse.
McCool teacher Joe O'Conner says they had the students speak with Secret Service officials as well as court marshals to learn how the federal court operates. "They just got to see how things actually work and hear from a person and the path they took to get to their career, what majors to take. So it just gave them a different person to tell them how to get to the same goal or career other than their teacher," he said.
The Judicial Center is also hosting nightly mock trials with students from the public elementary and middle schools this week.
