COURTROOM VISIT REPORT/TERM PAPER
One of the requirements of this course is that you visit a local courthouse to watch a trial. You may choose to view a judge or jury trial, but you must be sure that you observe a substantive portion of the trial (i.e., opening statements, direct and cross examination of witness(es), argument of a motion or summations). You may visit any courthouse that is convenient for you. If you are unable to physically attend a trial, you may watch oral arguments presented to New York’s Court of Appeals (New York’s highest court). Example Youtube

Description of the Courtroom
The courtroom was an organized and silent place where one could even hear people murmur. However, it was much smaller than I expected. This forced me to sit next to the family of the defendant, something that made me uncomfortable. The prosecutor held a large cart in his hand that contained physical evidence in plastic bags. The court did not have many spectators; even if they came, they would not have space to sit because the room already appeared full and occupied. The judge appeared to have everything in the courtroom under control. He spoke distinctly and clearly so that everyone could hear.
