Brock Educates Teachers at First NCBA/ABOTA Teachers Law School

Walter E. Brock, Jr. played the role of defense counsel in a mock jury selection and then led a breakout session on August 8th at the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) Foundation Teachers Law School Program. His breakout session was titled “Judicial Independence: Struggles of the third co-equal branch of government.” In his presentation, Walter discussed recent high-profile US and NC Supreme Court opinions illustrating the judicial decision-making process, the critical importance of judicial independence to our democracy, and state and federal judicial appointment, election and disciplinary processes. The day long program was in partnership with the Law-Related Education Department of the North Carolina Bar Association. Roughly 55 middle and high school educators from the triangle area were in attendance. The purpose of the program was to provide teachers with the chance to learn from some of the best and brightest members of the bench and bar, equipping them to better educate their students on the practical realities of civil and criminal law procedures. Associate Justice Cheri Beasley of the North Carolina Supreme Court was the keynote speaker, and attended the breakout sessions.
