David Parker's Class Visits Supreme Court


 David Parker's Class at Supreme CourtDavid Parker’s business law class took a trip this past summer to visit the Supreme Court. He’s taken classes to the US Supreme Court for the past two years. 

He says, “The students love going because they get a real sense of how important the cases are that they study in class.  It also makes the whole judicial process that they study come alive,  Also, the Court has a museum that explains the entire history of the Court in much greater detail than what they learn in my class or any of the other classes they may have had regarding the judicial system.  Further, the students get to go and sit in the actual courtroom and receive a lecture on how cases are heard, who is allowed in the courtroom and where everyone sits, as well as its traditions and unique architecture.”
