Constitutional Law Elective Visits U.S. Court House

Students in History Teacher Dr. Athan Biss's Constitutional Law elective visited the U.S. Court House where they met with the Honorable Judge Gene Pratter (P '94) (U.S. District Judge for the Eastern District of PA, Trustee), the Honorable Judge Karen S. Marston (U.S. District Judge for the Eastern District of PA), Ms. Katayoun Copeland '85 (U.S. Department of Justice), Ms. Elizabeth Toplin '84 (Assistant Chief of the Trial Unit, Federal Community Defender Office for the Eastern District of PA) and FBI Agent Tracy Hield. Students sat in on a criminal trial and then were able to ask the women questions about the law and life. It was an incredible opportunity to see how the concepts studied in class apply in the real world.
