Earlier this week, CUL Center for Student Development students participated in an activity with the American Bar Association which included 20 judges from across the United States at the
Loyola University Chicago Power Rogers and Smith Ceremonial Courtroom
A discussion took place on individual rights and freedoms as designated in the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. A civic program entitled
“Aliens from Outer Space”
gave students the opportunity to discuss what rights they deem most important and why they should be retained.
Participants were given the opportunity to ask the judges questions regarding their rights and share their personal experiences.
At the conclusion, each student was given a book that explores the Declaration of Independence and United States Constitution to guide them further in their studies.
