Making it Real

On June 17, 2013, District Judge Anthony Battaglia (Southern District of Californa) hosted a group of high school students attending a summer "Criminal Justice Academy" coordinated by Exploring. These 25 students, who are all planning to pursue a career in law or law enforcement, had an opportunity to watch actual sentencings and probation revocations followed by a panel presentation consisting of representatives from some the many careers available in and associated with the federal judiciary. From ICE to MCC, court reporting to interpreting, prosecution to defense, nearly a dozen representatives shared their stories with these students and told them what it takes to be competitive for these government jobs.  It was a wonderful learning experience for the students and an enjoyable presenting experience for the professionals.
