“You Be The Judge” Class Action Summer Teen Camp (Delta Region)

This is a week-long camp for high school level students. Students are divided into 5-6 legal teams to argue hypothetical civil cases. The cases involve personal injury or property damage resulting from different scenarios on underage drinking. Underage drinking is presented as a community-wide problem. Giving students the opportunity to debate the legal intricacies of alcohol-related cases involving teenagers broadens their horizons on the issue.
