Civics 603 offers NH educators and their students the opportunity to travel to the New Hampshire Supreme Court, meet with court officials, learn about key cases, and develop and present mock appellate arguments before lawyers acting as judges. The in-court program takes about 120 minutes. Two extremely successful “pilot” programs were conducted in April 2018, and students were able to meet with, and ask questions of, the Chief Justice of the New Hampshire Supreme Court. Learn more.
