State Court Visit

2011 News Archive

On November 17, 2011, the LL.M. class visited the Massachusetts Superior Court for Suffolk County to observe the American court system in action.  The students first met with Superior Justices Hines and O'Connor for a conversation about the Massachusetts state judicial system and court procedures.  They spent the remainder of the morning observing a criminal trial and hearing opening arguments in an employment discrimination case.  The visit was arranged through former Superior Court Justice John C. Cratsley, who is an adjunct faculty member at the Law School.
