SAISD First Day of School is August 14

Law Professions and Public Safety Magnet students participate in mock trial

Media Advisory

Who: Law Professions and Public Safety Magnet students participate in mock trial as follow-up to May 1 mass casualty exercise

When: May 29 (Thurs) – 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Deliberations set for noon.

Where: Fox Tech High School, 637 N. Main Ave.

This mock trial will provide teens from both magnets real-world experience as they hone the skills they have been learning in the classroom. Fox Tech law magnet students will portray prosecuting and defense attorneys, paralegals and expert witnesses while those from Edison will represent firefighters, police officers, detectives, crime scene investigators, witnesses, jury members and the person on trial.

Students also scripted the mock trial, which is the closing activity for Edison’s annual mass casualty exercise, which took place earlier this month. At that event, the school’s Health Professions and Public Safety Magnet students worked in partnership with the San Antonio Fire Department, San Antonio Police Department, San Antonio Office of Emergency Management, San Antonio EMS and San Antonio AirLIFE. Adding to the realism were student actors playing the roles of the injured.
