OSHER Students Visit Federal Courts in San Diego
Over 30 students from San Diego State University's Osher Lifelong Learning Institute visited the United States District Court for the Southern District of California on November 7, 2013. The students, ages 55 and over, toured all three courthouses and met with Bankruptcy Judge Margaret M. Mann and Senior District Judge Jeffrey T. Miller. They learned about the federal court system from Clerk of Court W. Samuel Hamrick, Jr., and observed bankruptcy court proceedings and district court sentencings. They had an opportunity to hear from representatives of local branches of the Office of the Clerk, Office of the U.S. Attorney, Office of the Federal Public Defender, U.S. Probation Office, U.S. Marshals Service and even the warden of Metropolitan Correctional Center. It was an excellent opportunity for the group to learn about their court system.
