In addition to these goals, the JTBF Scholars also take away other skills. The mock trial gives the student public speaking experience in front of an actual judge or attorney, and the lessons in basic legal research provide the student with a familiarity certain to be applicable and helpful in a college curriculum. At the end of the day, the SLI endeavors to give the students the resources and confidence to pursue a post-secondary education and beyond.
