As part of their learning in Constitutional Law class, CCU Pre-Law students Christy Andrews and Perry Moore researched the legal issues surrounding the Little Sisters of the Poor v. Burwell case. They each wrote court briefs summarizing their findings, which is work typically reserved for law students.
As the culminating activity for their class, they were privileged to present their case arguments before Hon. Robert C Winkler, Judge of the Court of Common Pleas for Hamilton County. Judge Winkler has been serving the courts since 2002 and was impressed with the level of work produced by these Pre-Law students. At the conclusion of their arguments, he provided feedback on their presentations as well as invaluable insight into the justice system.
Adjunct Professor Bill Frank has been practicing law in Cincinnati for 29 years. He made the necessary arrangements for his students to present their case in front of a judge. Regarding his students and their efforts, Professor Frank said, “Christy and Perry’s performances were third-year law school quality. This is one example of how the CCU Pre-Law program will continue exposing students to the actual practice of law as recommended by the American Bar Association in its recent statement on Pre-Law education.”
