High School Students: Due Process
Conversations with Leaders in the Law

Selecting Topics

The Law Day theme "Celebrate Your Freedom" sets the stage for many good topics, especially those related to due process. There is a broad spectrum of fascinating cases that can serve as a point of reference for a lively discussion. Teenagers may have heard of Miranda v. Arizona, the Oklahoma City bombing trials, or Oprah Winfrey's recent trial, but need to know more. Other important cases that can spark interest are: New Jersey v. T.L.O., Vernonia v. Acton, Hazelwood v. Kuhlmeier, Bethel School District No. 403 v. Fraser, In re Gault, Goss v. Lopez, Terry v. Ohio, Gideon v. Wainwright, and Mapp v. Ohio.
