IMG_0539 (2)

Undergraduate students in the Introduction to Criminal Justice class at NSU’s School of Criminal Justice participated in a semester long exercise, culminating in a successful Mock Murder Trial.  The course is taught by Assistant Professor, Grace Telesco, Ph.D.

The trial was conducted in NSU’s Shepard Broad College of Law courtroom, on November 27th. Michael Dutko, a current student in the criminal justice Ph.D., who is a Criminal Defense Attorney, played the role of the presiding judge, making the experience that much more realistic and valuable.

The students worked diligently on the case, from the investigation to the closing arguments, and did an amazing job.  Many of the students described how valuable the experience was in showcasing a potential career in criminal justice.
