Courtroom Project

‘Legal Aspects of Management’

A course I am taking with Prof. Patrick Spott, which was added to the Management curriculum recently, has been a paced learning journey. A few topics the course covers include – ‘courts and jurisdiction’, ‘criminal law’, ‘intellectual property and cyber piracy’, ‘genuineness of assent and statute frauds’, ‘ bankruptcy and reorganization’, ‘agency’. The course is structured with five non-cumulative exams worth 35 points. Here’s what struck me about the course, the mandate ‘Business Owner interview’ and the ‘Courtroom project’.

I just proofread and finalized my Courtroom project on November 17, 2018. For the project, students were to visit a local courthouse, Duluth’s ‘Gerald W. Heaney Federal building & U.S. Courthouse & Customhouse’ in my case; attend court for about 2-3 hours and write a two-page paper about the experience. Prof. Spott gave us basic and essential instructions in class about the expected behavior as well as guidelines to follow during the process. He also gave the choice of attending court with other students in order to feel more comfortable rather than out of place.

In my personal opinion, this is a great way to expose students to certain realities of life in a way that matters. Cause what we as young adults perceive to comprehend through series and shows like ‘Bull’, and ‘Law & Order’ which are directly related to courts, judges, cases etc is not necessarily even close to the actual scenario.

I attended the Criminal court on November 15, 2018, with Chief Judge Sally L. Tarnowski as the Judicial Officer with 43 case counts. Not only was this a learning and intriguing experience, but also a huge doze of life.

I am glad for Prof. Spott’s vision behind the purpose of having his students get exposure beyond the walls of Scholastica, in order to better equip us to sustain stability in lives.
