The deadline is April 16 for North Dakota secondary history, government, and social studies teachers to apply for the 2018 North Dakota Justices Teaching Institute: "The Constitution and Judicial Decision-Making."
The North Dakota Supreme Court has developed this public outreach program to foster a better civic understanding of the role of the courts, how they work, and how judges make decisions. The Institute enables teachers to teach others with confidence about the nature, history, structure, function, and processes of the courts and the legal system.
The Institute is facilitated by the Justices of the North Dakota Supreme Courts, the Honorable Gerald W. VandeWalle, the Honorable Daniel J. Crothers, the Honorable Lisa Fair McEvers, the Honorable Jerod Tufte, and the Honorable Jon Jensen.
With Supreme Court justices as their guides through the day-and-a-half program the teachers will explore the judicial system and the criminal court process in the context of preparing for the Institute's final application - a mock oral argument. The teachers will serve as justices and decide a Fourth Amendment constitutional question.
The event is scheduled for Oct. 18-19 at the State Capitol Building in Bismarck.
