Steinger, Iscoe & Greene attorney Jeffrey R. Rollins will be in attendance Saturday April 24, 2010, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Fort Pierce courthouse where fourth- and fifth-grade Northport K-8 School students will unveil their verdict in the negligence case of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry v. Rubeus Hagrid. As chair of the Saint Lucie County Bar Association Mock Trial program, Rollins will be overseeing the court proceedings at Saturday’s mock trial.
Jeffrey, along with other attorneys, facilitated some pre-trial preparations for the mock trial. Students broke up into groups in preparation to become the bailiff, jury, lawyers, judge and witnesses. Each lawyer worked with a group of students to assist in honing critical thinking skills and teach and explain the purpose of the trial process as well as helping the students learn the major parts of a trial.
All are invited to come out and observe the legal proceedings in action on Saturday, April 24, 2010, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Fort Pierce courthouse as students take the stand and present their arguments. Steinger, Iscoe & Greene applauds the efforts of firm attorney Jeffrey R. Rollins and congratulates the students whose involvement in Saturday’s mock trial shows promise toward the future of our legal justice system locally, throughout the Treasure Coast and South Florida, and the world.
