ICS Juniors Experience Justice System First-Hand through Schools in Court Program

On Thursday, December 12, half of the Class of 2021 spent the morning at the Anne Arundel County District Court to observe real-life cases and learn about the legal, financial, and sometimes devastating consequences of making poor choices through their Schools in the Court program.

The class enjoyed their visit this morning, where they got to speak with District Judge (and ICS parent) Shaem C.P. Spencer, who leads the program. "Our goal with the Schools in the Court program is to make students aware that choices they make at this point in their lives will have a profound effect on their futures," said John P. Morrissey, Chief Judge of the District Court of Maryland (and ICS parent.) "I commend Judge Spencer for his ability to engage the students while discussing real-world scenarios and actual cases." The other half of the Junior class will attend a Schools in Court session on February 6.
