This Law Workshop will focus on an issue that has been a highly publicized and incredibly important issue in colleges and courts around the nation this year: the issue of student safety and sexual consent on college campuses. The students in the group will watch a mock trial that has been coordinated for them and will participate as jurors. The students will hear the case, deliberate, and render a Verdict.
Serving as our Judge will be the Honorable Joyce Karlin Fahey, former Los Angeles Superior Court Judge, former prosecuting trial attorney and former Mayor and Councilmember of Manhattan Beach. MYC parent and trial lawyer Ed Lear, Esq. will serve as our Prosecuting Trial Attorney, and criminal defense attorney Tom Loversky, Esq., will serve as our Defense Attorney. The accused and key witness will be played by Alex Stephens, college junior student at Cal Lutheran, and Max Campe, college junior student at UCLA. Dr. Michael Matthews, Superintendent of MBUSD, along with Deborah Hofreiter, Vice Principal of Mira Costa High School will also be in attendance.
