Student Court at Shortridge Provides Lessons for Litigants and Litigators
Students at Indianapolis Public Schools’ Shortridge Magnet High School for Law and Public Policy have an opportunity to learn the ins and outs of the judicial system in a way that hammers home the impact of the experience. Student Court, supervised by Kelly Rota-Autry, ’95, decides student issues, including one case that focused on whether a middle schooler with discipline problems would get to remain in school. Professor Fran Quigley, ’87, writes about Student Court and IU McKinney’s partnership with Shortridge in his column in the Indianapolis Star.
Professor Quigley is a clinical professor of law and teaches in the Health and Human Rights Clinic. His forthcoming book, How Human Rights Can Build Haiti: The Lawyers, the Activists, and the Grassroots Movement, will be published by Vanderbilt University Press in 2014.
