In this program scouts will investigate the judicial system and its important role in our society. Activities include a trial reenactment in our historic courtrooms and a debate of historic and contemporary issues. An attorney and a National Park Service Law Enforcement Ranger discuss their roles and responsibilities in society. About 4-6 weeks before the workshop scouts will receive a packet of workshop details and several pre-workshop activities. Completion of the pre-workshop activities and all workshop sessions will fulfill all law Merit Badge requirements.
