Attorney Arndt Participates in Law Day

Each year, local high school students are treated to a mock trial in the Fulton Circuit Court. Some of the students participate as jurors and some even get to play roles as witnesses.  Local attorneys present a criminal case, complete with examples of jury selection, opening and closing statements, cross examination and physical evidence.  It's fun for the students, but educational, too, as most have never seen the inside of a courtroom.  This year PWP attorney Rachel Arndt helped by being one of the attorneys in the case.
