Each year, our Integrated Studies program at Nathan Hale High School in Seattle runs a Mock Trial for the novel “Lord of the Flies”, by William Golding, as a culminating assessment for second quarter, which also happens to be a major highlight of the students’ high school experience.
Teacher Starr McKittrick is currently in search of volunteer lawyers to be judges for the trials (one in each of the 10 IS classrooms). As of today, we have six of the ten judge positions filled by local attorneys- all of whom are male. We would like to help you in your efforts to “further the full integration of women into the legal profession” by requesting help in filling our last four spots with female lawyers whose presence will broaden the reach of inspiration that comes from student participation in this experience. The trial dates and times are:
Tuesday January 29 – 12:00-3:00 (includes lunch and orientation)
Wednesday January 30 – 9:15-11:30
Thursday January 31 – 9:15-11:30
Thank you in advance for your help in our effort to present a diverse panel of experts for our students here at Hale.
