|Judge Henderson (center standing) speaks to students before their arguments as Prof. Fortson (standing right) listens.|
Students prepared arguments for two hypothetical cases. Their arguments were presented before
Anchorage District Court Judge Jennifer Stuart Henderson who rendered a decision after each case was presented.
Prior to the oral arguments, students prepared briefs on their cases and submitted them to their opposing counsel team and to Prof. Fortson. Earlier in the semester, the students also participated in a simulated trial, conducting opening statements, direct and cross examinations, and closing arguments.
