Local schools take field trip to federal courthouse

Constitution Day was a special day for students from some public and private Buffalo Schools. They visited the Robert H. Jackson Federal Courthouse downtown to celebrate our country’s most important document. The American Board of Trial Advocates coordinates the field trip each fall. This year, the celebration held special significance, as it also marked the 60th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in Brown vs. Board of Education. As Chief Judge William Skretny explained, the discussion was dedicated to the 14th amendment to the Constitution, which grants all citizens equal protection of the laws. Cameras are not usually allowed in federal court, but Winging It! Buffalo Style‘s Lauren Hall was invited to speak with students about what the landmark court case means to them.
