Students Court Success

Students in Sunnyside Community Services’ Youth Futures program at Queens Vocational & Technical High School enjoyed an inspirational learning opportunity when they visited the Honorable Sanket Bulsara, Magistrate Judge, United States District Court for The Eastern District of New York in his courtroom by special invitation. Judge Bulsara and the staff shared valuable information about the courts. Students learned the distinctions between the federal and state courts as well as various courtroom procedures. The class then put their newfound knowledge to good use by conducting a mock jury trial modeled on an actual case. The experience made an enormous impression on the students. They “could not have asked for a better trip with our Career Readiness instructors and peers.”
