Advanced Technologies Academy (A-TECH) seniors looked and acted the parts of lawyers, engineers and other professionals when they did their capstone project before District Court Judge Joanna Kishner on Apr. 20.
Students from the legal studies program served as the attorneys in the case, while students from the business management and administration, architectural drafting and design, and engineering programs served as expert witnesses and defendants. A-Tech’s community partners and school staff served as jurors.
The mock case centered around what was intended to be a fun-filled train trip with a marriage proposal. But things turned bad for the couple John and Jennifer. Jennifer sued the train company for inadequate security, inadequate staff training, and inadequate evacuation procedures. Architects and designers were dragged into the suit which resulted in a challenging capstone project for the A-TECH seniors with majors in law, business management and administration, architectural drafting and design.
