Law Symposium & Mock Trial

The Alpha Mentoring Program along with The Village participated in the Law Symposium event led by Cara Hunt of the Black Law Student Association on March 25th at Washington University. While at the university, the boys did a variety of scavenger hunt activities in various rooms in the Anheuser Busch Building. In the afternoon, we went to the St. Louis County Courthouse in Clayton, Missouri for a mock trial led by Bro. Joshua Lubatkin. He and Bro. Justin Strayhorn guided our boys as they engaged in the roles of defense and plaintiff attorneys. Newly appointed St. Louis County Municipal Judge Carla Hughes participated as the judge in our mock trial.  Thank you to officer Steven Musselwhite and Attorney Portia Musselwhite for also participating in the mock trial.
