Courtroom Turned Classroom

The high school’s Business Law students attended a taping of “The People’s Court” on October 25 in Stamford CT. The afternoon reality court TV series features Judge Marian Milian presiding over a courtroom and hearing civil cases involving contract and tort law.

Accompanied by Business Law teacher Maureen Koch and Library Media Specialist Mary Beth Rossetti, the students sat in as court observers and witnessed several different civil cases. “The students were very much a part of the set, as the TV cameras spanned the litigants and audience as the cases were heard,” said Koch. She noted that the students were familiar with most of the courtroom proceedings from their classwork.

After hearing the cases, Judge Milian met with Koch’s students for a Q/A session and photo op.

“Visiting courtrooms and the set of ‘The People’s Court’ enriches the law experience for our students,” said Koch. “These fun, exciting and educational field trips have been a Hen Hud tradition for the past 18 years.”

The exact dates of airing will be posted when available.
