HERMON – The Maine Supreme Judicial Court is taking justice on the road this week to three high schools.
It’s giving students the opportunity to see how the Maine court system works.
Chief Justice Leigh Saufley says its a way for students to see how the Maine and Federal Constitution affects their everyday life and community. “We are hoping that they take away both the better understanding of how appellate law works and a better understanding of those very important constitutional issues that they’re going to hear about today”
Since 2005, the Supreme Court has visited 29 Maine high schools and heard over 85 appellate cases.
The court will hear three appeals today at Mount Blue High School in Farmington, then at Scarborough High School tomorrow.
