RE: Federal Court Teacher’s Institute 2008
The United States District Court, Central District of California is again inviting teachers to participate in the Federal Court Teacher’s Institute program. The program will be held on Thursday, October 23, 2008, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at the U.S. Courthouse, 312 N. Spring Street, Room 1001 (10th Floor), Los Angeles, California. This year’s presentation is entitled “Stop and Frisk Under the Fourth Amendment.” The purpose of this year’s topic is to provide high school teachers with a foundation for discussing with their students important concepts in Fourth Amendment law as they relate to the Supreme Court case of Illinois v. Wardlow (stop and frisk).
This year, the program will include more teacher/panel discussions. The interactive format will still include a presentation by attorney panelists, discussion groups facilitated by Panel members, and a teacher debate. Question and answer sessions will be interspersed throughout the program. Written material will be provided.
